High Tide

I was released from the hospital yesterday after 8 days and 2 surgical procedures. I have Polycystic Kidney Disease. One kidney is functioning at 14%, the other at 16%. It is pretty rough right now. Stones in both kidneys and a bad infection. I had to be taken by ambulance to the ER on April 30. I was so weak I couldn't stand up. I don't know for sure what is next, I'll see the urologist next week. I'm in constant pain so I'm on heavy duty narcotics. What fun...narced up or unable to breathe the pain is so bad.

I just read of your problem on OCICBW. I shall add you to my prayers.

Do not overlook dialysis as a sort term treatment. The machines are now available as portables that can be used at home without a nurse.

FWIW

My dear Roseann, Shel told me yesterday. You will be going on St. Paul's prayer list forthwith, as well as my own. Please send me your snail mail addy, if you care to share it.

I've updated my email address, but you can contact me through my blog.

Hugs!!!

Dear Roseanne, Prayers are ascending twice daily (and more when I squeeze them in) as I pray my Daily Office. You will also be added to our DOK prayer list.
May God's peace and love surround you.
