Right as we started my sister's bday festivities my mom's dr called her. She said that my mom's blood work shows no improvement or signs that her kidney is starting to work again. So today she is having another dialysis catheter put in her chest bc she got an infection in her current one. The cath she gets today is her 3rd in roughly 5 wks! In a month she has to have the permanent one done. They sew an artery and a vein together & every other day at dialysis they have to put two large needles in the new artery to hook her up to the dialysis tubing. :-(
We were really disappointed to hear that she wasn't improving. Her cath procedure is painful too. She was in the ICU on a ventilator in May and her kidneys haven't started since. She also had large clots in her catheter tubing at dialysis today so now she has to see a hematologist too.
I'm emotionally worn out to the max! And Cam has his EEG Friday morning. I also got a packet of questions to fill out for Cam's ADHD eval. A PACKET!!! Ugh I'm really missing everyone here & I'm trying to get it together but I'm struggling right now.
