good news

Garty's fever finally broke right before lunch today. It lasted a full 72 hours with absolutely no other significant symptoms. Tonight the pediatrician called to say both the throat and urine cultures came back negative, so we have no idea what was wrong. We're just so thankful that it wasn't kidney related. We're not happy that he takes 2 doses of blood pressure medication daily at his age, but we're thankful that he isn't facing any other problems yet with his disease. This week we had to face the dreaded thought always in the back of our minds that his disease could be progressing. Every month that goes by without new symptoms developing brings greater hope that he may never need a kidney transplant. However, we know that new concerns could arise without notice. Thanks to everyone for your love and prayers. Our kids have no idea how blessed they are to have so many people cheering them on, but we do.

Glad to hear the good news. It's difficult to live in the shadow of this disease. I'll pray that God's peace and light dispels the darkness.
