Larry’s Story

Site created on August 1, 2009

Over eight years ago Larry was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). This is a genetic, progressive disease that can lead to loss of kidney function. Larry received a kidney transplant from his cousin, Kay Glodowski. Unfortunately, Larry will be needing another kidney transplant and is currently battling new health issues. More information will be posted to updates soon!

Journal entry by Larry & Mary Glodoski

We still find it hard to believe that the radiation treatments are finished...Yes, I rang the bell this morning after my last trip to the treatment room.  All in all, a pretty uneventful week, at least health wise.  Katherine came to lend support all week except for Wednesday.  Rosie brought Olivia and Michael brought Leo Wednesday, and we had a blast with our two kids and grand kids.  We spent the morning at an arcade at Chuck E Cheese, and the afternoon at a warehouse full of bounce houses, where the kids had so much fun.  

The week of daily radiation went off without a hitch.  We met with the Doctor on Tuesday, and he reaffirmed his confidence in the treatment he prescribed.  So here we are, hopefully on our way to being cancer free!  My next appointment will be a CT scan in 3 months, and I'll let you know how that turns out.  As always, thank you for the support, encouraging words, and prayers!

Love,  Larry and Mary
