Journal entry by Jill Stevens

I’ve lost count of the days I’ve been in the  hospital. I’m now at UPENN Medical center. I’m being treated for something known as Calciphylaxis. It is a rare and dangerous condition that can affect people with end stage renal disease. It hurts like a mofo. As I continue to heal I will be here until at least the end of the week. I will then go to an acute wound care rehab for a few weeks as the wound is too big do care by myself. 

They have gotten a pretty handle on pain management and if this wound would heal it would be a very big blessing.

i would like to say thank you to everyone for your outpouring of love and support I am encouraged and held up by all of this. Please keep me your prayers and I feel you j is anyone who would like to donate a kidney in my behalf that would be just amazing!!   Thank you. I’ll keep everyone updated on here. Peace out ✌🏽
