Won't affect Goshen, but we will have some tough discussions when we get back. Right now it is the "machine alarms" that wake us up twice nightly due to the slow operation of the catheter drain that is problematic.

She is still getting good dialysis (so far) and implementing a solution is not time sensitive. We are still hoping the live kidney swap comes through before the catheter issue forces our hand.

PD is what allows us to travel for long trips (like Goshen) while she is in dialysis (we drop ship her supplies at the campground - or FR FROG headquarters in the case of Goshen).

Our choices are another surgery to try a different kind of catheter or complete removal and Hemodialysis which is "In Clinic" every 3 days (end of camping until she gets a viable kidney).

Will meet with her Nephrologist this week to discuss options.
Seems she can't catch a break...

Lou
We are so sorry about that news.

Lou & Laura, you guys are in our thoughts and prayers. Really hoping for good news from the doctor. Please keep us updated.

Hope she is cycling her stock!

Rennie, I am hoping you will be riding with me during the "elephant walk" parking marathon. I need an expert parker to keep me out of trouble and the backups to a minimum!

Herk sorry to hear about Laura's bump in the road. Glad to hear we will still see you both in Goshen. We will be arriving on Thursday to help out again this year.
