Rally for Ryker

Meet Ryker Cole Slaney,  Ryker was born onJuly 18th 2014 and at only 4 weeks old was diagnosed with Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome a rare condition that affects 1 in 50,000 ( mostly boys) Ryker started dialysis at 6 weeks old for 15 hours a day and will continue to do so until he is healthy and big enough to receive  a kidney transplant.His loving parents Mark and Magda are by his side at Childrens Hospital ( Vancouver BC) 24/7 spending precious time with their baby boy Ryker, praying for a miracle....
Please join family and friends in helping bring Ryker home..
Namaste Jacki....
Update Nov. 14th 2014

After 77 days @ the Childrens Hospital excited parents Mark and Magda were finally able to bring their baby Ryker home as they were trained how to administer his dialysis machine and his medications and diet thru his feeding tube in his nose...
Unfortunatly after only 5 days at home Ryker was readmitted to Childrens with a ruptured hernia. He had surgery on Nov 13th 2014 to repair the hernia. Ryker cant be on dialysis right after surgery as his body needs time to heal, however without dialysis his feeding is very limited as his little body is unable to remove fluids and toxins..
Within a week he will be able to resume dialysis starting at 24 hrs. a day reducing as his body adjusts down to 15 hrs. a day. There is no real timeline to adjust...
Without any further setbacks the family should be able to go home and resume Ryker's treatmet there..
Because Ryker will eventually  be receiving an adult kidney, he needs to be a certain weight and height, possibly by the time he is 2-3 years of age, until that time he will stay on dialysis for 15 hours a day...
Ryker and family you are in our thoughts and prayers.
The funds are to be used to ease the financial burdon while the parents stay with their son Ryker...
Namaste and blessings....
