Nolan at Camp Carefree Reunion with a friend. Hard to believe it's only been 18 weeks since Nolan received his new kidney. Looking great and feeling better every day. On to new adventures this year. While the fundraising has slowed down, we are still short about $15,000. Please consider giving to help support Nolan and the medical expenses that he is incurring. Thanks.
We were afraid Nolan was experiencing organ rejection and went to UNC on Tuesday May 28 for a kidney biopsy. He kept asking for Versed (an amnesiac medication) until I finally had to tell him to stop because he was acting like a drug fiend. The preliminary results show no signs of organ rejection! He is plowing away at home school and will be attending summer school. He hopes to start driver's Ed. this summer.
Nolan had his kidney stent removed on Thursday, May 10th. Two more weeks on 'house arrest'. Labs look terrific. He's learning the medications for his transplant and starting to manage his care.
We had a blast playing tennis this morning and raised over $1000. (The money is still coming in.) Thanks to everyone who participated and donated. Go to www.cotafornolant.com to stay up to date on Nolan's recovery and to make a donation.
Nolan went home on Wednesday, April 18th. He's had a couple of good nights at home with Nurse Amy.
