Happy 2018. This is a big year for us, as Lucas will be helped with a new kidney.
He’s had a bit of rest, some time in the sun and even swam a bit. Not easy if you need to keep a catheter wound dry. It is very hot in Cape Town and we truly need water for survival.
I have had more tests done so we are eagerly awaiting the results. So far so good and we are hopeful that I will pass all tests and will be a good donor.
Thanks to all your support we will now start seeing a private nephrologist next week. We trust he will help Lucas feel more comfortable. It has been a trying time for him with the chronic physical discomfort, fatigue and insomnia caused by his illness.
We have to keep the spirits up to get through another 5 months until the kidney transplant, which we hope will happen in May.
Thank you again for your support and continued prayers.
