Continue the journey

I am a 48 year old female who is now in stage 5 kidney disease. I have not started dialysis as of today but I have a fistula that was placed November 16, 2022. I have an adult son with autism that I’m his caretaker/guardian. It’s been challenging to manage my own with him transitioning into adult services .

I was diagnosed with stage 3 and was fine up until Covid came along. In May of 2020 I caught Covid and that pushed me into kidney failure (stage 5). The nephrologist had hopes that they would rejuvenate as it was considered acute kidney injury. They did get back to a 4 and now they are stage 5 with about 10% function .

A transplant would mean that I could be here to see my children and grandchildren get older. It means that I would be here longer to provide and continue to advocate for my son with autism.

Just an inquiry would brighten my day. I have some family that has tried but can’t for various reasons . Another chance at life to continue to be a mother to my son with autism and continue on our journey
