Green Light!

     
     On Monday, Karen was given the "green light" by the nephrologist  to be Sawyer's kidney donor.  Woo-Hoo!! 

     It's been a longer road than we anticipated to get to this point, but we are grateful Karen is healthy and able  to be the donor.

The surgery date is set for March 20th.

      Reality is setting in!  It's hard to wrap our minds around what is getting ready to happen.  It's truly sobering.  However, we are ready. 

     Sawyer has already started making a list of all of the things he wants to eat  that have been prohibited by his renal diet over the last few months.  Chocolate milk tops the list!

whoo hoooo. ! how exciting, but also sobering as you say......A very serious step for sure, but so great that Karen is healthy to be able to do this and we can trust that GOD will guide the entire surgery from beginning to end on both of them...... Praying it goes without delay or anything problematic on any level !

Praise the Lord!!! We continue to have people from our church family ask about Sawyer and how he is doing. I can't wait to share this news with those prayer warriors! Braden continues to pray for Sawyer, too, during his bedtime prayers. :)

Doctors may also prescribe Provigil for the treatment of spastic cerebral palsy, ParkinsonпїЅs disease, opiod induced sleepiness, myotonic dystrophy, chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as fibromyalgia. It may be used to treat ADHD, seasonal affect disorder which is also known as SAD. http://www.courtarrestrecords.com/ - modafinil price Most patients will not experience these side effects but those who do will usually find that they are self limiting or that they will cease when the medication is stopped.

Cluster headaches have been shown to react very quickly to the injectable form of Imitrex. Migraine headaches can be so severe as to result in lightheadedness, nausea, and vomiting. [url=http://www.hawaiianhospitalitygroup.com/]purchase imitrex[/url] Imitrex also comes in a nasal spray form that may work more quickly than tablets for some people. Cluster headaches appear suddenly bringing with them an amount of pain that many sufferers have rated as completely off of the traditional one to ten scale.

The differences is that it helps the patient to fall asleep, but does not help someone maintain sleep. [url=http://www.jobhunting2011.org/]purchase ambien[/url] Ambien is a medication that is used to treat insomnia in those who are not responding to habitual changes that can aide in sleep. It has been prescribed for millions of people all around the world. Patients should discuss the risks and the benefits associated with the medication with their doctor before treatment is started.
