The power of the love here is so strong.  I have seen it work over and over.

My oldest son Kevin has been diagnosed with kidney failure.  Dialysis is not an option. He is 29.

I believe that God heals, and I know sometimes he has another purpose.  Please pray that we will find peace in God's will.

Thank you all for your kindness, many, many times.

Kathy, you and your son and family are in my prayers. Is a transplant a viable option?

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to pray for Kevin and family. It's difficult to see your child suffer, especially with such a serious matter.  Nothing is too far gone, to big, or too hard for God.  Right now I put my faith in His will for Kevin's welfare.

God bless,
  Rae

Please be assured that you and your family, especially Kevin are being remembered in my prayers and I have asked God to surround Kevin with his angels of protection.

Hang in there.

There is a calm upon our family, that I attribute to our higher power.  Your kind wishes and prayers are appreciated.

Transplant is the only option now, however being self employed no doctor will see my son right now, until he gets health insurance.

We are supporting him and each other day by day.  Thanks to you all and bless you.

Healing tears and prayers for the continued faith, strength and courage of your family, and a miraculous means of Keving getting health insurance - in whatever form - so that a doctor will see him; and for a kidney being available as soon as possible or much sooner.  

Hugs

The lack of health care available for so many in our nation is an abomination!  This makes me so angry.

I continue to hold your son my thoughts.

Miracles happen in all sizes.
Further testing, new doctors. Insurance came through.
Kevin will begin dialysis in a few days.
They have discovered his liver has taken on some functions not being done by his kidneys. Doctors cannot explain it.
There is some time, and mostly hope.
Thank you for your prayers.
We are blessed by your caring and concern.

It always seems that when we let our worries out to the universe instead of keeping them pent up inside us, we are delivered more answers and solutions and sometimes just unexplainable, and for lack of a better word, miracles. We will keep your family in our prayers.
