*Story via Caring Bridge *

Kade and Kallan got really sick from a bad shiga toxin producing bacteria. It started last Sunday with Kade and Monday with Kallan. They had non-stop bloody diarrhea and vomiting. The disease that causes these symptoms is called HUS and affects organs systems starting with the kidneys.

After several ER visits we were rushed by ambulance to Children's at the U of M on Wednesday when lab work discovered they both had acute kidney failure.

The toxin from the bacteria not only damaged Kallan's kidneys but also her neurological system. Her brain and heart were being damaged. Our sweet sweet little girl lost the battle and went to heaven last night.

Kade is still fighting. The toxins have not reached his neurological system but both kidneys. He has had a blood transfusion is on kidney dialysis and may need platelets. He has a long road to recovery and we hope and pray the toxins stay away from his brain and heart and other organ systems.

Please pray for my baby boy to stay strong and keep fighting. Joe and I are so deeply hurt from sadness. It is absolutely heart breaking watching your babies in so much pain and being so helpless.
