Shane is the person who's smile and positive attitude spreads anywhere and everywhere he goes. Shane is only 19 years old, but has gone through more than most 19 year olds can imagine. He had a kidney transplant after undergoing many months of tests and doctor visits for him and different family members, and finally a match was found. His cousin Jeremy gave Shane his kidney on July 13, 2010.
Until the end of April and beginning of May 2013, his health has been perfect except his Crone's Disease. Shane and his family received the news through a biopsy that his kidney failed.
He spent six days in the hospital where he got a temporary hemodialysis catheter followed by a hemodialysis catheter in his chest, so he can be on dialysis until he can get a new kidney transplant. His kidney was removed on May 1, 2013 and on May 21st, he is going to get a PD catheter put in his stomach so that he can be on mobile dialysis which will allow him to live a more normal life and he can do dialysis by himself. He is excited to be done with Hemodialysis!
We pray that he can get a new kidney transplant soon and like Shane always says, "You never know the good in life until you experience the bad."

Amazing Car Wash turnout. We feel so incredibly blessed. We made 616 dollars today and every cent counts. If you didn't make it to this wash, we will have plenty more. Haha maybe a little more planned next time so we don't run around like crazy people. A million thank yous aren't enough, God bless everyone who helped today.

Well back to the doctors today, PD catheter isn't working. Had to get an X-Ray and they said the tubes are in the correct position and look fine, now we are waiting for the doctors orders on what to do next to make it work. Still having slight pain and the dumb thing isn't even working. Hopefully they can figure out the problem :)
Shaylee got a hold of the local radios and they are going to announce the car wash to EVERYONE Wooh!! We have delivered donation buckets to lots of places and have been selling rice krispies at D&J Grill in Marsing, today we tried chocolate rice krispies and they were a big hit.
Andddd Katie Clous has given us the opportunity to sell large tote bags for the month if June and we get to keep some of the proceeds. I'll post the website and you will have to check them out!
Hope to see you soon at the car wash :)

Cat scan was good and so was his blood count, yay!!. They said the blood in the urine may have been because of the heparin he is given at dialysis. Get to go back home, hopefully the pain gets better.

We sure were excited for this PD catheter, but since he has gotten it it has caused a lot of pain! We pray nothing is wrong but he has never had so much pain from a surgery or had to take pain meds just to sleep. Today after dialysis, he peed blood and the doctor told him to go to the ER, so that's where we are now. He is getting blood and urine tests and a cat scan to find out what's wrong. Let's pray it is nothing bad and we can go back home asap. I'll keep everyone updated.
Also don't forget about Saturdays car wash!! 1 to 5 at albertsons!
