View Full Version : Pixie Dust for Kids with New Kidneys

04-03-2007, 07:23 AM
I was wondering if you could help me out with some pixie dust here.

My son and another boy his age both had kidney transplants (one day apart) in November. They are both having some issues.

The other boy has PTLD which is a cancer in the lymph system brought on by immune suppression. He has like 15 tumors on his kidney and a few on his liver, spleen, and colon. This is a boy who went through dialysis (we never did) and received a cadaver kidney. They were on top of the world! This is such a big blow.

We have a much smaller problem but my son is dealing with a latent virus also brought on by immune suppression that can destroy the kidney (thankfully it only attacks the kidney and nothing else). We thought it was getting better but it's not.

So, do you have any spare pixie dust? My friends need more but we could use a little, too. I feel so selfish that I am just hoping to get to Disney next week and they're probably fighting for his life.

Kelly, here's a truckload of :pixie: for each of the boys! I was so touched by your concern for the other boy... God bless you!

I hope that you enjoy your trip. Getting away and enjoying yourself there (all of you) will do you all a world of good. As a dear friend once said (the one who posted two above me :hug: ), not all healing happens in a medical setting.

Lots of prayers for the two kidney kids!

I'll keep your family and the other boy's family on our church's prayer list.

How old are they? I hope you enjoy your trip!

Sending loads and loads of :pixie: :pixie: and prayers your family's way, and for the other boy you know - I so hope things turn around for both of you! And like everyone else said, don't feel bad about your trip - you definitely deserve the joy & happiness it will bring you, and when you get home, you'll be better off as a family, and able to be even stronger for your friends. Keep us posted on how the boys are doing!!
