No news is good news.

So, I haven’t updated for a long time—basically because everything has been rock solid. Coen has been on Soliris for nearly 2.5 years. I can’t believe it has been that long already. The disease continues to be in remission and he is thriving. Kidney function has not improved or declined during that time. Creatinine still sits at 1.6 consistently.  We just changed insurance company’s for the 4th time since the start of Soliris and luckily, once again it got approved without a…

Christmas is coming.

Coen, almost 8, is very excited for Christmas. He is counting down! We are busy planning for our annual Christmas Eve party--which entails lots of food, tons of people, free-flowing wine, rockband on wii--and always a very special visit from Santa. As I think about it, it is funny how traditions come about.

It was December 15, 7 years ago, when Coen was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with aHUS. I always remember the date because I remember being totally ignorant and…

Update

Hi everyone! November and December have turned out to be quite crazy work months so I've been bad about logging on as of late. Finally, I have a week off and am excited having a chance to reconnect and see how everyone on the site has been. I just wanted to give a little update on Coen since I've been so quiet.



Since starting Soliris 10mos ago, Coen has remained in complete remission despite several colds, a flu bug, and mild pneumonia. His Haptoglobin and LDH has been perfectly… Continue

Coen Update

Sorry guys. I leave you a vague update and then never give any details. It has turned out that for some reason, at the hospital, I can't access this website--so I had to wait until I could run home for a few. Here's the whole story:



Thursday Coen said his throat hurt which unfortunately is code for "I don't want to go to school tomorrow". We didn't think much of it since Friday he woke up and didn't say a word. That same day, we finally found a place that has a H1N1 vaccine so we… Continue

Calling for Notecard Inspiration!

Hi all,

We are getting ready to start designing super cool notecard/generic gift packs that will be sold as a fundraiser for the foundation. The cards will be trendy and cool so that anyone might want to buy them but also have elements that reflect the spirit of the kids that fight this disease. That's where I need your help. I need inspiration!



A couple people have sent me drawings that their kids have drawn, which is great and I'll happily take more! Other things that could… Continue

The doctors have kept Soliris an option from the beginning and started the process of getting it approved. They did mention the possibility of starting it now but I haven't heard anything else about the outcome of that. I feel if he would have been on it to begin with, we would not have the heart problem now. Will keep posted. Thanks again for everything.

Hi Jodie
Thanks to answer me and send me the e mail. My son has had with high blood preassure during three years and four different drugs to low it. I think that the cause of ahus is the damage in vascular endotelio, because my son is without kidneys since 2006 and this years has controled his blood preasure, I Think that is some consequence of this, I am study this, because I take it his blood prerasure at home with the machine and write the levels since he was ahus with kidneys and without kidneys during all this years. He is fine and his heart too, I think that when he will receive a new kidney we bill be so happy and feel a lot. When doctors taken off the kidneys tell me. Do not worry because this summer he wil be one, after take him the complement system study and told me we sorry but your child has mutations in factor H and he will not can a kidney because he will loose it. In September it wii be four years in hemodyalisis without kidneys and three times per week during four hours he is fine , ha has a different life but he is with me and my family.

While you're in Florida try to hit the Sarasota Jungle Adventure, where Skyler held the alligator and fed the flamigos - it was a interesting and relaxing venue. If only they played some vintage hard rock, it would have been perfect! LOL

Oh, Jodi I am so sorry about your dog, I know we will be facing something similiar again as our bunnies are close to nine years old now. It was so hard when our dog died, I think Nathan will take it really hard when the bunnies go. Hope Coen copes well, you never know with these guys as some of Nathan's friends he's made in the hospital have also died. They are so mature in some ways. God bless you.

Did you know...

CFH (Serum Complement Factor H) is a regulatory protein. The secreted protein product of CFH consists of 20 repetitive units named "short consensus repeats" or SCRs (each approximately 60 amino acids). In patients with aHUS the last 5 "pearls" in the twenty pearl strand protein, SCR16 - SCR20, should bind to protect cells but do not- they are defective in one or more of the last 5 SCR locations. If they cannot bind or stick to the kidney to protect that tissue, the platelets clump into clots that affect the glomeruli of the kidney -potentially causing acute renal failure.

It is estimated that there are about 2 cases of aHUS in the U.S. per 1,000,000 of population, and about 60% of aHUS patients are diagnosed as children. The condition is potentially life threatening, and either can be chronic or can recur at intervals.
