The Pediatric Dialysis Unit (PDU) at Levine Children's Hospital is holding a "Kid-tucky Derby" to promote healthy diets. Every month has a theme or focus that the patients will learn more about and try in incorporate. January's focus was having a low sodium diet. Evan and Eli played "Low Sodium Bingo" to learn which high sodium foods to avoid, learned how to read a nutrition label, and were even quizzed on all they were taught.
The dialysis shift (they are on MWF morning) with the
best average of monthly lab work won a party. They DID it! They
celebrated during dialysis with decorations, balloons, and home made
low-sodium "Chex Mix".
Donor testing for Bryant (dad) and Evan
is 90% complete! The Selection Committee meets next week for the final
approval and to set the transplant date and schedule the OR. We have
been told it could be as early as the end of February!
The Blue and Green 5K fundraiser has been moved to Saturday, May 11. Click on the link to register to run, walk or volunteer!
