Emily Anne Langan was born 3/12/2021 at 3:29 pm. She spent a day at the Prentice Hospital before being moved to Lurie Children's Hospital in downtown Chicago.
We found out during the 30 week ultrasound that her kidneys were enlarged, and there was little-to-no amniotic fluid in the womb. After consulting with doctors at Lurie's, they seem to think it's autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. We'll hopefully know for sure in the coming weeks. This will most likely result in peritoneal dialysis until she can get a transplant around the two-year mark.
We are using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place. With friends and family literally from coast-to-coast, having this central "blog" will help with the day-to-day communication of how she's doing. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
