Finally ready for Dialysisand she is one year older than me.


I have had a very hard week this past week.I never got a chance to post anywhere on Chick Advisor because,I've been too busy getting my Sister ready for Dialysis.Her Kidneys are almost stopped functioning and she had to have surgery to get a shunt implanted in her arm so she could start Dialysis.She has been in Hospital this past few days because she got sick.She couldn't eat or drink anything without it coming up.I have to say Chicks,my heart is broken for her.She is less than a 100lbs now and she is one year older than me.I'm hoping she will be getting out tomorrow.Her Husband passed away Christmas before last so,it is just her and her Son.Who I might add,is excellent with her.This is about the hardest thing I have done in my life,apart from loosing my Grand-Son.We have a Kidney disease in our Family that don't skip a generation.So,meaning I have three Sisters left to go on Dialysis.I lost one and my Brother with it and my Dad.My Mom,God Bless Her,had cysts on her Kidney also.It is such a terrible Disease with no cure.Sometimes I wish I had somewhere to run and hide from this.This has been taking up a lot of my time and now,it is all done.If you Chicks feel I shouldn't be talking about this here,please say so and I'll stop.I'm only looking for someone to talk to about this or,just listen.If you are offended please let me know and I'll stop.I promise.Angelwingsx2.

First of all, I am so sorry to hear about this stressful time you are all going through, especially so close to Christmas. I am sending you a virtual hug.

This is always a safe place, my friend. We all support each other, and it is so great to have a safe place to chat, get input, or just know someone is listening.

This may be a very good thing..I have seen patients live awesome lives on dialysis. Will she be home, or in hospital for treatments? I have had patients do dialysis overnight at home.

This is absolutely a safe place for you to vent your fears. I'm so terribly sorry that your family has been dealt this hand. You, your sister and nephew are all in my prayers. Sending love and hugs xoxo
