Update on My Mom

Just when things seemed to be looking up a little with my Mother, things took a turn. She was moved Wednesday night to the rehab center but Thursday her kidneys started having problems. After watching and waiting again yesterday, as of this morning the kidney Dr. has decided that she must undergo dialysis. Seems her kidneys are just not able to clear the toxins from her body and they need a little help. She is very weak and tired but hopefully this will do the trick. It should be over in a few hours and then we will go in for a visit. I've been warned that she will be quite worn out from this but hopefully will start perking up after that. If this one time doesn't work, they will probably have to do it again in a couple days. The hope is that at some point things will be cleaned up and the kidneys will start functioning better on their own.

I'm not sure why I want to put these flowers in here. Probably just to try to make things seem more cheerful when they really are depressing and worrisome.
