I'm going try to finish this. Did want to say that when I was in the hosp I had alot of kidney trouble from the liver.Almost had to go on dialysis a few times,but luckily avoided it.But they put me on this fluid intake where you could only drink so much & they measured everything going in & out.I thought I was going to die of thirst.When I was sent to nursing home I couldn't walk,sit up or turn over on my own.I couldn't even roll on my side to sleep.But with help from therapy I eventually did it all.it was tough!I did have to go back to hosp a few times because of infections.So everytime my temp would go above 100.2 I would get sent to hosp.I rode in alot of ambulances!It was very hard to eat at first,I was nauseous alot of the time.Lost alot of weight.Was in nursing home about 3 months.Now I'm home!!I take 30 some pills a day.Developed med induced diabetes.Still have some kidney problems(bun & creatnine are still too high).take 4 different meds for high blood pressure.but I'M ALIVE!!!haven't had to go back to hosp this year at all because of infections.cool!I'm doing very good.Hope this helps some of you with what you may have to face.If you want to know anything just give me a buzz!!!Bless you all for listening!!
