Welcome to Dialysis

Laura’s in the hospital again. I brought her into the ER at about 9:30pm last night. She’s been feeling pretty bad for the last 5 or 6 days and had gained about 25lbs of fluid in the past 4 days. She really didn’t want to come to the ER but we both knew it was time to come.

After running a bunch of labs they gave us the bad news. Her kidney function is basically all gone and she will need dialysis immediately. We were admitted and finally got a room at 2:00am.

She’s currently in the operating room getting the access line put in her chest. This is NOT the way we wanted this to go. We were hoping that she was going to have time to get the PD surgery done on Sept 2, but unfortunately that’s not the way it went.

Once they put the access in, they will start dialysis later today.

I’ll post another update later.
