Today MrGee's vascular surgeon told him that he looked too healthy to have kidney failure! Oh-yeh... I agree.... this 41 year old (who is starting dialysis tomorrow morn) looks in blooming good shape!!!! hehe ........ I believe it's his good mental state, people's ardent prayers and God's grace that are sustaining him. Thank you Jesus.
MrGee had the fistula procedure done in his wrist today.Because his creatinine levels have sky rocketed and the fistula will only be ready for use in 6-8 weeks, they had to do an emergency neck catheter so that he can start dialysis tomorrow. Once the fistula is mature(6-8 weeks), they will dialysise through the veins/artuaries in his arm twice a week.
I phoned him this evening, and he said he was in pain and that the nurses had just administered another dose of heavy pain killers.
keep ya posted ......
