I was down to 5% kidney function, sick as hell, throwing up everything that I ate, her Dad died and I felt like she was about to have a nervous breakdown. I was not going to do dialysis I was just going to go ahead and die, but I had to do something to turn her around so I started dialysis. Now she has taken care of my needs and wants for several years. Strong woman, love the hell out of her, always have and will. The death of our youngest son (today makes 9 years) nearly killed both of us but we pulled tru it together (still hurts to talk about it, kids are supposed to bury their parents not the other way around). Today was a rough day thanks for letting me vent. David
Sorry to hear about the rough day. You deserve better. Im really glad to hear youre not alone.

I read about your rough day with a tear in my eye.

Yet it gives me strength realizing how strong the human body and spirit really is. God bless you my friend.

I will be the first to admit that it's not easy to keep pushing forward. Keep focused on the love you share with your wife. It's what keeps me going on hard days.

Canadian eh!!!

Well after 2 months in the hospital, 8 blow outs of my fistula, they shut it down, put in a perm-cath in my right chest wall, then they mapped my left arm for the possibility of a new fistula in it. Surgeon found a vein that he liked, but due to the depth of the vein it will be a two operation deal, first to make the fistula thenthat has to heal for 4-6 weeks then a second surgery to bring it up so they can stick it. Surgeon was real happy with first surgery, now we wait, but it will be at home. I am real weak, will have to re build my muscles on my own, my insurance decided not to pay for rehab. David

I just got back from my surgeon, he is real happy with my new fistula, now we wait for 4-6 weeks for it to mature, then another surgery to bring it close enough to the surface to make it easy to stick for dialysis. Got the staples removed from my old fistula site.
If anything new comes up I will keep you folks informed. Now if you know anyone who wants to lose a few pounds, I can recommend the hospital food diet, in a little over 2 months I lost about 40 pounds with no exercise, just bad food, small portions and dialysis 3 times a week.
All kidding aside I want to thank youfolks for the kind words and concern.
David

Awesome news. And congrats on the 40 lbs gone. Tough way to do it but a good thing to drop some extra baggage.
