Fast forward four years and our daughter is doing well she still has a feeding tube but is eating more and more solid food every week. She is finally potty trained and doing fantastic. Now our new fight is for my wife, who now has renal failure and is requiring a kidney transplant. When we received the news in August that Priscila's kidneys were now functioning at less than 14%. She made arrangements to stay with her parents in Brazil for a couple of months before she had to start dialysis back in the U.S..
By September, her condition continued to deteriorate at a much faster rate and she is now unable to travel. Her mother is has gone through testing over the past 3 months and as of now is a viable kidney donor for Priscila.
I missed my daughter's 4th birthday last month and would like to be in Brazil with them for the transplant sometime in December. I would like to stay a month with them through the part of the recovery process. Priscila and Phiona won't be able to travel back to the U.S. until March or April when she is out of the most dangerous part of the kidney rejection time frame. It would also be nice to spend Christmas with them. Priscila last worked in August and has had to quit her job because of the unknown timeline of her now serious condition.
With your help, I will be able to be there with my wife in this very scary time of our life.
Most of the money I need to raise is for the round trip airfare to Brazil. Anything else will go toward our rent and help make up the time off work for the both of us.
