Memorial Day Weekend

I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  This is Bill and I's anniversary week too, so we will be visiting our family members who have moved on to much greener pastures, heaven.  It has been 16 years  since we lost our oldest son, Billy to a car accident when he was 9.  The anniversaries of his birth and death are, of course, really hard on the whole family, but Memorial Day weekend isn't so bad, because we get to celebrate the lives of many.  May you all be blessed with the…

I am doing just fine :D

Hello to all the aHUS families out there!

I know it's been a LONG time since I have been on here, but I have been very, VERY busy. I was hired as a Veterinary Technician at a veterinary clinic in Amherst NY on March 17th :) I am doing well, still getting the hang of things, and I am improving with each passing day.  I have become a part of the veterinary team, very quickly, despite my medical situation and my height; they don't judge me in that way. They have been willing to train me…

Anna and Soliris

Anna just finished her 4th week Soliris treatment. She is been doing very well, less complains about headaches or any kinda pains (back, knee, tummy) and NO blood and protein in her urine. We start Soliris with her labs been good except her urine and we are glad even for this little thing that we don't need to worry. She will continue to get Soliris for about 6 mo. then we will make decision what will be our next step.

Stomach aches

Our 8 year old daughter Devon was recently diagnosed with aHUS on March 5, 2012. She spent 5 weeks at CHOC hospital in Orange County CA. It was an incredibly difficult time as you all could imagine. We feel very blessed that she was diagnosed within the first 24 hour and were/are thrilled with the nephrology and hematology teams.  We are still waiting for blood test results to come back from Iowa.  They originally told us it would take 6-8 weeks now they are telling us 3-4 months. Does it… Continue

Jack update

It's been a while!

Jack has been doing great - just finished his freshman year of college, is working part time, and best of all, back to playing b-ball with his friends:)

One glitch... His labs have shown increased levels of renin and aldosterone and he has new onset proteinuria. So, his doctor has decided that his native kidneys need to be removed. We kind of knew this was coming. Next week, Jack is scheduled for laparoscopic bilateral native nephrectomies. He'll be inpatient… Continue

Tummy Troubles

Brody had chronic diarrhea for a couple months now. It was to the point that the poor kid was having accidents in his pants at least once a day. He just turned four by the way and has been potty trained for awhile now. We had been to the doctor a couple times and did all the necessary blood tests related to any food allergies ect. Everything came back fine but we took him off dairy just in case. Several weeks went by and no improvement. The doctor's suggestion was to make a "diary" of when…

Update on scopes and other fun stuff

Just realized that I havne't posted here in FOREVER!  Can't remember if I even put on here that Hyde was having a colonoscopy and Endoscopy a week or 2 ago?  Anyway - it was a result of on-going diarrhea after his virus back in January that landed us in the hospital for a week - here's the latest below.

Hi - quick update - first off Hyde survived his colonoscopy and endoscopy - he didn't have a ton of fun but at least it's over. The initial…
