Aug 27, 2018 · Husband refusing dialysis in Caregivers

New labs in Sept. He actually got back to stage 4 coz his kidneys were perfused better when they brought his bp up. Sleeps a lot…very winded with any exertion. Ty so much for checking on me once in awhile. How are you? I forget your association with kidney disease..I have gotten all mixed up.

Thank you, Ozys(did I get it right). Some days are better, as I am sure you know.

I wrote an answer, but it didn't go anywhere :). He is at 18% now, and creatinine is under 4. We have never gotten along well so as he begins to feel better, he seems to have the strength to enjoy upsetting me more. Jekyll and Hyde routine. I don't do really well with the challenges..tend to isolate, coz don't like to be judged for telling the story of how it really can be. I do have a friend or two that I share with. I am in a Bible study, Sunday School class and choir.. good church folks, but not too many I will really share with. Even my best friend..feel like she is avoiding some of the conversation I need to spill. She told me that she thought I would be handling this better, as a Christian. She is prob. trying to avoid making such a HUGE error again. It may help to spill to you. We need a lot of work done on the house, and I will have to fight with him, because he doesn't want anyone messing with his stuff ( garage..measurement, house needs to be jacked up). His potassium was low, but they are just going to give him a supplement for 3 days and then have me increase it in his diet.

Sorry, Ozys. Sounds as though you guys were really close

so sorry, Ozys. Sounds as though you were really close to him.

Potassium is low, but I think they will fix that pretty easily…pills for 3 days, then increase it in his diet.

Sorry..didn't answer very quickly and then found out I had to redo my password. Phone isn't working well..so..frustration..avoidance. 🙂 I had a good Easter also. My kids came to church with us and then out to lunch. There were icy road conditions, so we all had to go home. Yes, this holding pattern is very hard. I tend to isolate some. I don't really know the answers to the questions people ask. We have always had some marital problems, so when I become angry, then I have to deal with guilt. His kidney functions was 17% 2 mo ago. The dr didn't believe it. The dr wanted him to redo it in a week, but of course, Jack didn't. Jack had it redone yesterday, and his level is 18%. Creatinine is down below 4 again (from 6.8). I think he feels better, so he has more energy and can enjoy upsetting me…how is that for honesty 🙁
