It’s been a stressful last few days, Erika’s diagnosis has changed several times.
Erika wants everyone to know that she really appreciates all the texts and good thoughts. She hasn’t had the energy to respond in the last couple days but will respond when stronger.
Yesterday they did a kidney biopsy and found a lesion which was caused by her antibodies trying to reject the kidney. The good news is the nephrologist feels she can recover from it, but an extended treatment is involved. The treatment includes high dose of steroids and infusions to reduce the antibodies paired with plasmapheresis to get rid of the antibodies she has developed.
She will be in the hospital for 7 days. We all appreciate the thoughts and prayers.
