Back to normal, so to speak

The acute renal failure episode is behind us. Kidneys are back functioning at 26%. His swelling has gone down. But he is having lots of migraine headaches and severe backaches. Tonight he was limping while he was walking. But all-in-all, things are as normal as they can be.

I've been busy with my art. Preparing to teach 44 classes back at the store that is about 1000 miles from here. This time I'm driving and my sis is traveling with me. A girl's road trip! Should be fun! We will be gone 4 weeks. I'm sure something major will happen to hubby, but I'm planning on having a fun trip!

Dear WD

At 26% and his behavior its only a matter of time before three times a week dialysis is in his future. That zaps a body like nothing else. He was always so tired afterwards, it was all I could do to get him to eat before passing out for the night. I wish you strength and peace for the upcoming months. Things are really interesting for the non-compliant when on dialysis - cheating is apparent in a matter of hours and diet is a real brain teaser.

I know the road ahead.

I feel certain we are bound for this path. I just can't "think" about it right now. I might be a bit in denial - or most likely just want to put it off as long as I can. It's so sad knowing where he is headed, watching it, not able to prevent it.
