"How do you keep Nathan's cpap on? Paul is now supposed to "practice" wearing the mask while watching his favorite show-and it has to be turned on. Paul has an averse reaction to the pressure when it's on. Vicki"

"Good to get the update on Paul, it seems so funny he does the same thing with his CPAP as Nathan, on the nights he leaves it alone, he's up and going full blast, on the nights he fusses with it and pulls it off, he is lethargic and more likely…"

"Linda Burke: the creatinine was very elevated and his blood cells started bursting. I do not see the labs. Mom knows, but we let the doctors tell us what is going on. Am sure some others were involved, but I don't know which ones. Vicki"

Soliris and Paul

Paul started Soliris in Aug, 2009. He has done fairly well, except for getting sinus and viral infections which have led to hospital stays both locally and at Children's in Seattle. His labs returned to "great" status over a week ago, but he retained so much water that he's had trouble walking (waddling is what he says he does) and couln't wear regular briefs and was very tired. He returned to school (Kindergarten) Friday, Jan 29, first day since school let out in December. Good weather is… Continue

Vicki - hi there - I just got an e-mail from my husban'd aunt (Mary and George Parker) and they had asked for the website info I think that they are friends with a sibling of yours? Anyway - just thought it was a small world and I'd say hey!

If you go to the Home Page, there is a Forum on Soliris issues. When you check out Heather Still's entry for June 17th, you'll see the Soliris contact link toward the end of the entry.
To reach everyone interested in Soliris, you could post the vaccination question in the Forum section. Your question and my answer will stay on our pages, but Jodi could also inform you about Coen's vaccine experiences if you post add an entry to the Soliris Forum. I'll retype my answer below in the Soliris Forum if I see your question appear there, in the meantime...
As far as Skyler and Hunter are concerned, we were just careful WHEN we vaccinated them - always after a plasmapheresis or with Skyler's most recent shot, within 48 hrs after Soliris. Hope this helps, Linda

Hi Vicki!
It would be great if you could post Paul's experiences with Soliris on the Forum section of the website. Several members have wondered if Soliris might be effective for non-Factor H children. It is interesting that of the 3 aHUS children currently using Soliris, only 1 (Skyler) of the 3 is indentified as Factor H. Thanks in advance for helping other parents by sharing Paul's story.

Great to see you on the sight Vicki! Paul is adoradble! Hopefully we'll all gain information and support from being 'linked' through this website! Our Hyde has just turned 3 and is happy as can be.......very different than where we were last year.

You are welcome. I am glad the site is becoming a resource for families. I think it's great. Good luck with everything.

Welcome to the site. We are very familar with the nephrology team in Seattle. We used to consult with them quite a bit before Spokane had a dedicated pediatric nephrologist. It's nice to hear they are trying the Soliris as well. It has made Coen's life much better since starting it in April.

Coen did attend kindergarten last year and is moving to first grade. It was difficult at times especially when his energy level just didn't allow him to keep up with the other kids. After Soliris began, his final 6 weeks of kindergarten were by far the best weeks of the year.

I'm happy you made contact. Stay in touch. There is a Soliris forum and would love to hear how Paul progresses on Soliris.

Welcome to the newly launched website for The Foundation for Children with Atypical HUS - thanks for adding so many nice pictures. Paul is such a cutie! We hope that this interactive site provides information and support to all those dealing with aHUS, while creating a central hub for medical personnel and researchers interested in aHUS issues.
I have two sons who were diagnosed with Factor H aHUS, and we've put Hunter's and Skyler's stories on this site. Since Paul has several things in common with Skyler, you may want to check out some posts related to his experiences. Skyler just turned 5 a couple of weeks ago and also will start Kindergarten in the fall. I specifically asked for AM Kindergarten so that we can do medical appointments in the afternoon. Skyler has been on Soliris since early April, with excellent results, so perhaps the Soliris Forum posts will give you some insights or provide fodder for questions.
One of Skyler's pediatric nephrologists trained in the Seattle area, so it may be that our doctors already know each other. Please feel free to offer information or to post questions, and we certainly extend an invitation to Paul's mother Caryn to join us as a website Member.
