My Story



Emma had started with E. Coli and then got the disease HUS (hemolytic uremic syndrome) which causes kidney failure. This disease only occurs in 3 to 15% of children, Emma was one of the percentage. She had surgery to put the tube in her stomach to start the dialysis. This will help her kidneys to start functioning, but it is a slow process. This process can take any where from 2 to 8 weeks maybe longer. We are just taking it day by day and praying that her kidneys will start working on their own.

 Just please keep Emma in your prayers for a speedy recovery and her kidneys start working. As soon as that happens we will able to go home!!! We are all waiting for that day to come.
