update on Trevor and Thank you everyone!!!
I wanted to share with everyone what the power of prayer can do.First of all thank you so much for all your prayers, without them I would not be able to share this and we all know that it is because of them that we are able to move forward like this.Trevor went back to the specialist yesterday afternoon and had an appointment. They did all the regular testing that they do each time to watch the progress of the kidneys etc.The Dr. Told Trevor that he was sure that the kidneys were getting worse or just stopped where they were at because once they have started to fail then they don't get better they just stay the same or continue to get worse until the transplant is completed.So, he told him that things looked okay, and that he would (first miracle) call and refer him to the hospital of his choice here in Utah to be on the transplant list!!!!! So that is a major step that was completely refused up until now.... This is great news for us and makes it so that we will have more hope of a transplant when it is needed to be done. Isn't that awesome!!!So next he was sent to the lab to have the tests done again that they have been doing each week and then another one that they are doing monthly.. (2nd miracle) the kidneys not only are doing fairly well, the numbers show that there has been small improvement.. Not enough to take him off of the transplant list but, they are functioning again at a livable rate and it isn't in the critical area for right now. The Dr's said that this is a true miracle because usually they get worse not get stable... We are definitely not out of the woods, but, the prayers are helping we are positive by helping him to have the time we need to get the transplant and financial assistance that he will need to have the surgery as well. It has made everyone's faith here completely overwhelmed.. My husband, being in the medical field himself, is still trying to scientifically make sense of it all and keeps saying this just isn't possible scientifically... Trevor and Savana are just in tears and completely overwhelmed.. Trevor is still not able to go back to a work enviroment that is physically challenging as his job has been but, he is now going to take the time to find something that he can do in an enviroment he can be in and that has insurance to help them with their needs. We still know that we need prayers and faith and need God to help us through the trials that we have ahead, we know that we are not out of the woods yet, but, we also know that God is watching and helping and listening to all the prayers that are being said on his behalf.Thank you so much everyone... I am overwhelmed with your compassion and prayers for us..
