than before.”

That was the subject line of the email I received this morning from Austin’s doctor containing the results of yesterday’s kidney function test.

Even better than before.

Three weeks ago, his kidney function was on the low end of normal, which was only surprising because it was still within “normal” range at all. Now it’s well within that normal range, right smack dab in the middle of where it’s supposed to be. After surgery upon surgery upon surgery (and a few more surgeries), after chemo and radiation, The Little Kidney That Could is still going.

My response back was simply, “Wow. This kid(ney) is remarkable.”

Nothing more to say than that.
