@miprincipe Yes, that is his functioning value of the active kidney. You might want to question his dr if a transplant would be an option at some point. If there was to be a sudden failure of his working kidney, your son would need emergency dialysis, so that is a reality you should be prepared for, which your dr has probably talked to you about.

It is a difficult position to be in, isn't it, when your little one is ill. We want to give them the world, and search for ways to make them better. Having a congenital defect like your son has with his kidneys, creates a challenge to be upbeat all the time, so please remember to take time for yourself. I trust his medical team is following this closely.

Dear Ginger,
I thank you so much for your dear words and your advice. Unfortunately, I don t feel we are in the best hands and this is why my husband and I think we should try other choices abroad. In the country where I live, UAE, medical service is reasonable in some segments, but in others far away from being advanced. My son, as per his delicate condition, having only one kidney available, needs the most advanced knowledge available. This is why I am trying to contact the scientists who are working on stem cells studies. Hoping I will end up on a reasonable option for my son, with the will of God.
Please let me know of any info, article, experience regarding this matter. It could be the way to follow. Thanks from the deep of my heart
