Sorry it took so long getting an update to this thread. I have been at the hospital most every day from dawn till dinner (Bella can only hold it so long and HER kidneys have been tested perfect.
Laura was supposed to be released on Thursday after her third blood dialysis but there was a bump in the road. Her Peritoneal portal started to leak and they did not want to send her home with a wet bandage. Only the surgeon can remove the seal and since he was working at the VA hospital in Philadelphia till 7 PM he did not get back to our hospital until 1030 PM.
She was released Friday afternoon and is home resting and trying to make blood cells to replace those lost during the dialysis. Getting 3 back to back drained her pretty good.
Wednesday we go in for training on the home dialysis machine and we will be on our own (with home nurse if needed) after training is completed. Once a month we go in for blood tests to validate the dialysis fluid composition.
So her job is to get better!
Now to get the camper over to the inspection station before the end of April. Meh, not going to happen, but the shop is about a mile or two up the road.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, they helped immensely and kept a smile on her face in her darkest hours. The blood thing is REALLY painful and with her bad back staying in one position for 3 hours was near impossible.
Hope the worst is behind us, and hope to see you all in August (and a few of you in New York!)
Lou and Laura
