Hello all! I'm excited to say that I'm an official Perotineal Dialysis patient and my chest catheter was removed yesterday! My levels have stablized besides my potassium, which is on the lower side (nothing a banana can't fix). I was also told by my coordinator that I can officially be listed! I'm really excited that now I can accept any potential living donors that are approved. My father and brother are up first, so here's to hoping that one or both of them are matches. I am very relieved at how well everything is working out. I'm now able to shower, do household tasks on my own and I'm feeling much better. While I had never imagined needing a chest catheter in the first place, I'm very thankful for what it did for me these that two months.
Just a little update from me; hope everyone is enjoying their 2018!
