My mom's battle w/renal failure may be over!!

In May my mom was in the ICU on a ventilator and even coded once. She was there for 2 wks before being diagnosed with renal failure. She started dialysis & has had to deal with being on a machine for 4 hrs every other day to do the work of her kidneys. She had a catheter in her neck to start out then she got one in her chest which got infected so she had to get a 2nd one. It's been a long hard battle for her and for us to watch her go through.

As of last wk my mom was supposed to have a fistula surgery done to fuse an artery & a vein together in her arm for dialysis. But her blood work showed her kidney function was a few decimals from normal. (Normal range is .5 - 1.5 hers was 1.9) The dr told her if blood work today was under 3 she could cancel surgery for next wk & wean off dialysis. Her levels today were 1.5! NORMAL! So happy for our mama! Thank God, thank God!! ♥
