I can recommend checking out Optimum Nutrition whey protein (I'm a user for strength training) many flavors, mixes very well and has no unnecessary fillers.
All protein powders are not regulated by FDA so there is a lot of junk out there...just find what works for yall. Good Luck

Thanks. Will keep that in mind. Phosphorus is also the enemy as it destroys her bones by replacing the calcium. Gotta keep an eye on that number as well. The PD fluid won't get rid of that too well.

Potassium and Protein cross like crazy so her biggest problem is keeping enough behind to make RBC. We will get this tuned perfectly by the Rally!

For those going to New York in July. See you all there, Lord Willing.

I am also fond of the Almond and Coconut blend and prefer it instead of milk in my "Wheaties."

I will have to stop in and see if they have sample sizes.

Well, I have been sick with a head cold for about 10 days now. I thought I had successfully avoided giving it to the DW. Never thought I would be thankful for the hundreds of face masks and bottles of anti-bacterial soap and sanitizer I go through prepping her for dialysis.

However, she woke up this morning with a sore throat and cough.

I will get over mine just in time for her to give it back to me. Seems fair.

The 4,000 dollar CT scan last Friday showed the catheter in the right spot , so her pain during dialysis is most likely from a bruised/stretched intestine and will get better over time.

I have all the repair manuals for my GMC 2500HD sierra and they finally came in handy. I used them to raise the dialysis machine about 10 inches above the table. This reduces the suction some during the drains and she says it hurts less. I seem to recall our 800 dollar 1973 encyclopedia Britannica finally becoming useful when the couch leg broke, too.

Well, that's it for now. Blood work again tomorrow and we will see if her diet needs to be adjusted. We ramped up her protien and potassium.

I may need to cut back on the Gentleman Jack; then again, maybe not...

Been a while, so for those who are following this saga, here is the latest:

Well, we finally have a handle on the dialysis and she is doing great. (PTL)

She is still sick with the viral cold but is making progress.

Her last blood work came back great and we both got Kudos from her Nephrologist and her PD nurses for maintaining her diet (LOTS of protein and Potassium foods).

Once she kicks this cold we will work on her fluids (she is still drinking more water than she should, but not so much that the dialysis can't handle it.

Thanks for both of us, your prayers and well wishes have helped her keep her spirits up and we plan on seeing some of you folks at Watkins Glenn and even more at Goshen.
Lou
