Worried About DH   General Discussion

Mary, a person can sometimes be on dialysis on a short-term basis for a crisis situation and then go off dialysis once the crisis is over.  That might not be the case for your DH but I just thought I would share that idea with you.

Best wishes for you and Fred during his hospitalization. Try to think your best thoughts in the coming days.

Mary,  I'm so sorry that you and Fred are going through such a difficult and worrying situation.  It's the unknown that's so hard.

Yes, Judy the Dr told us that it could be temporary. His blood test has been stable at 3.1. It may go up after the surgery and come back down over time on dialysis.

As the doctors said the heart takes precedence over the kidney.

Thanks for the reminder to think good thoughts.

Oh, dear!  Lots of concerns for sure.  I'll have you on my prayer list.

I'm so sorry and I know the uncertainty of health, seemingly all of the sudden, is so very concerning and stressful.  Trust there is a plan for your lives and take a day at a time.  Reach out to friends and family you have in your area for them to just sit with you so you're not alone while he is taken for various tests and procedures.  You don't even have to talk about anything but just to sit with someone often provides such comfort.  I'm so glad you came here to share.  Do so anytime!

Thanks for your heartfelt concern and prayers. The procedure will be tomorrow (Monday) afternoon and I'll keep you posted.
