11.06.2007 - Dialysis

From Julian's COTA Journal.

We met with Julian’s doctors in Denver on November 1st to revisit long-term and immediate strategies for Julian’s care. Julian’s situation is finally to the point where dialysis can no longer be avoided. So on November 29th, Julian will undergo surgery to have the catheter installed whereby we’ll be able to hook him up to the dialysis machine. Then once he’s healed, Stacy and I will undergo training so we can treat him at home. We're nervous, scared about the unknown. But we're convinced that at this point, this really is the best thing we can do for him.

We'll post more information as things progress - certainly when he goes in for surgery. In the mean time, our annual newsletter is almost, nearly ready. If you don't receive one in the next few weeks, drop us a line and we'll add you to the list.

Thanks again for your continued prayer and support.
