On October 1, 2018 Naomi Grace
was born to Lukas and Tara Sudbeck
. Naomi was born with ARPKD (autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease) this disease does not allow Naomi’s kidneys to function properly. Before birth, Naomi was given a 1% chance of survival and beat those odds! Upon arrival Naomi was well over 8 pounds and over all as healthy as we could expect. On October 3rd, within her first days of life, Naomi underwent surgery to have dialysis ports placed in her abdomen and neck, and to have one or both of her kidneys removed.. again Naomi defied the odds and was allowed to keep one of her kidneys. Naomi will be sedated for a few days so that her healing can begin with minimal movement. Her body is taking well to dialysis, but tomorrow is not promised and we are hopeful and optimistic. Luke and Tara plan to pray and fight for Naomi. Please help this family give Naomi the fighting chance she deserves.
