Bo seems to have turned a corner yesterday for the better! He has more energy than we’ve seen in 5 weeks, he’s gaining strength, and his kidneys are becoming more and more stable.

His kidney team is pleased with the amount of time he’s been able to be continuously connected to the machine and are curious to see how he will do disconnected. The last time he was taken off the continuous machine, he put fluid […]
