BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) – Brayden Eidenshink, 10, is suffering kidney and lung complications 13 days after receiving a heart transplant.

His mother, Brenda Eidenshink, posted an update Tuesday to Facebook from the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto:

“Brayden is very very very sick right now.. doctors are very concerned but say that if dialysis works we could be in a better place in 48 to 72 hours. Doctors are so impressed with how strong he is... I just pray he can keep fighting.”

According to Eidenshink, Brayden is on a new kidney machine called Aquadex and is the first pediatric patient at the hospital to be treated with the device.

The family is asking the community to pray for Brayden's recovery.
