Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We are together working toward remission of an advanced case of kidney failure. Also the doctors involved are using treatments that can actually bring up my kidney function. There are still symptoms and side effects which must be handled as they come up. I am on leave from my job at Hope Christian Middle School while we deal with some of the problems that have come up. My journal updates, I hope will be mostly about the progress of raising my kidney function(which will help everything else function better as well). I will also post prayer requests and update those as well. We appreciate your prayers and your words of encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
