Renal Failure

 Children hospital in Oakland volunteered to take on Gavin's file. Out of the kindness and generosity for a military family, they did it for free. This was a big blessing since these reviews are very expensive. We received the report late last night. It was a long night for me as I read the 9 page medical review over and over again. While trying to rack my brain around his complicated medical diagnosis and the challenges to come. We will be having a conference call with the specialist later this week but it's pretty clear from the report the severity. He is in stage 4 renal failure. Stage 5 is end stage. The optimum situation to have him transplanted before he gets to 5th stage.  I can't help but fear the unknown. That is where trust and prayer comes in. As I texted Andy late last night the short version of the report his answer was simple. PRAY!!! So that's were you all come in, please Pray for Gavin. Pray that we will get there fast. Pray that when he is home we can find him a match. Pray that the much needed funds will flow in fast. Pray for our strength and courage for the journey ahead of us.  We have 15 days left on Ten For Orphans to raise $10,625. We need some matching Grant opportunities to make this possible??

  1. Wow, you guys really have things so organized for all of these steps to get Gavin here! This little boy has no idea all the love coming his way, but the really neat part is that some day, he will know. And he will be so grateful. And be able to tell you himself. That's awesome to think about. You are in our prayers. I'm glad you guys decided to just go and get him!!!
