Quick Update

At Kameron's appointment on Thursday he had lost 2 more pounds. It was SO frustrating to all of us. We shoved so much food in him and he still lost weight. THANKFULLY - Dr. Montierth is going to hold off on putting him in the hospital because he is really wanting him to see a couple specialists this next week. We're going to see a hepatologist who will hopefully be able to tell us how bad his liver is and also he will be able to tell us if Kameron has hemochromotosis (I don't know if I spelled that right) What that is, is a disease where his body has a hard time getting rid of iron. It stores it mostly in his liver. It is one of the main causes of liver failure. So ... after we see that doctor and his rheumatologist (she's been helping us get his lupus under control) then we'll know a lot more about what is going on and what is going to happen. Things are looking a lot more promising. It's just hard to watch Kameron be in so much pain and be so uncomfortable and there is nothing I can do but play the waiting game. I am glad we have good doctor's we're working with who I have a lot of faith in or this would be a lot harder. I guess it pays to live in a large LDS community at times like this!!

Also, I know I will never have the time (or energy) to personally thank all of you for you well-wishes and prayers. So, I want to let you all know how much we really appreciate your prayers at this difficult time in our lives. We are truely blessed with wonderful family and friends who are a great support to us. So, thank you so very much from our little Haban Ohana. We love you guys!!
