Talking Great news

My brothers kidneys are working on their own now. HE is able to stop treatments. He still has 2 drainage tubes in his stomach but thats should be taken out before long. Thanks for all the prayers!! Its so scary to think just a month ago we didnt know if he would survive his WLS. I am praying he is on the road to a long healthy life now.

Glad to hear it. Give your brother a hug for me!
