I recently had a follow-up with my doctor, and my kidney function is down to 7% function. I am so devastated, but I know I'll somehow find the strength to get through this.
On a happier note, my bake sale over the weekend was a huge success! Every item that was donated had sold before quitting time! We were truly blessed by the outpouring of love and support from many people, whether through sales, monetary, donations, or words of encouragement. Thank you to everyone who donated their valuable time and effort to help my cause!

I had a 3 month checkup with my nephrologist last week, and I learned that my kidney function is down to 8% now. I'm still not having to receive dialysis just yet, and I'm very grateful for that. My doctor wants to see me every 2 months now, so I'll post another update when I have more news. Thank you for your support!
