For the past couple of months, Eric has not been feeling well.  He has been vomiting, he developed a cough, his skin itched everywhere, he was weak, and his feet became numb and burned. On Sunday, November 29th, they went to Urgent Care.  A blood test revealed dangerous levels (BUN was 276, creatine 32, and hemogloban 5.5) requiring an immediate transfusion.  The next day they went to the hospital emergency room and he was admitted. Doctors have said it is probably MPGN (Glomerulonephritis).  Since that time he has had 5 pints of blood and kidney dialysis nearly every day. Yesterday, he had a kidney biopsy which should pinpoint what we are dealing with and why. The results will be available next week. He is taking blood pressure medicine and antibiotics.  Changes have been very slow coming.  The burning in his feet bothers him the most.  

Although Eric is safe now and the doctors are making progress on getting him better, both Eric and Lyndsey have not been working while he has been in the hospital.  The two of them already live on an extremely tight budget with no safety net available to them.  The current situation keeps them from working and will have critical impact in the next few weeks. Furthermore, with Eric's condition, this will be a major life adjustment and his ability to earn a living will be affected for many months to come.  

If you want and you can, please help them get through this difficult emotional time by helping alleviate the many financial worries they are sure to encounter in the days and months ahead.  

Donations can be made through Paypal, however, you can also use your credit card as well. This is very safe. When you open it, click on Paypal and then pay as a guest to use your own credit card.  If you want to send a check directly to them, text me for the address joynmne@gmail.com

Thank you so much!!!!
