Update on Nate!

Nate had his second appointment today with the kidney specialist. It went very well and the doctor is very positive and optimistic. Nate's current kidney level is at 23%. If you remember from the previous post, Nate can be put on the transplant list when his kidney function is at 20% or lower and dialysis and/or transplant will start after his kidney function is at 10% or lower. We are going to meet with the transplant center in Denver within the next couple of months to get things started and line-up possible donor options. It's important to remember that a transplant could be years away we are just making preparations. Nate's other lab levels were "perfect" according to the doctor. Nate is anemic which is normal with PKD and we may need to treat that soon. We again feel very positive and will take each step as it comes. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
