Sean’s Story

Site created on November 23, 2019

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. 

Sean's story began when he was 14 months old and diagnosed with kidney disease. After many remissions and relapses, at 8 years old his kidneys began to fail and he had a transplant. His transplanted kidney has served him well for nearly 27 years. 

In July 2019, a tumor was discovered on his one and only kidney. It was found to be cancer and his kidney needs to be removed. Surgery is scheduled for Wednesday, January 8, 2020. He will likely be on dialysis for 2-5 years before he can receive another transplant. 

This Caring Bridge journal will be updated regularly to keep our family and friends informed about his journey.

Journal entry by Cheryl Pierce

Sean had a hiccup today. He has been feeling pretty tired and sore after the Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) catheter placement on Thursday. This morning he started running a fever, so he went to the ER and was admitted to the hospital. He's had blood tests, a CT scan of his abdomen, and two rounds of different antibiotics. Because of the contrast medium used for the CT scan, he'll likely need dialysis before he can go home.

We hope this is just a small setback and he'll be able to go home tomorrow to continue healing and transitioning to PD.

Thank you for your prayers and love.
