At Hadassah Hospital today, a kidney specialist visited Wateen. In the past, this doctor has treated diseases similar to Wateen’s. For genetic blood analysis, the doctor mentioned that an IV connection is needed, but until now has not been possible in either Wateen’s arm or leg.
The doctor said they will try a more risky IV in the neck tomorrow; if successful, they can collect enough blood for the genetic testing at that time. The IV will also be used to add Albumin to Wateen’s little body. The doctor confirms that until now, there is no known cure for this specific kidney disease in which the loss of Albumin is the primary and debilitating characteristic.
Your continued prayers for little Wateen are greatly appreciated.
