Friday marked 10 weeks. During dialysis, it was discovered that the fistula was infiltrated and stopped working. Dialysis was cut to an hour and unable to finish, her kidney specialist was called to Bethesda.
They are going to try again Monday and if the fistula doesn't work, Myra will go back to St. John's for a new catheter in a new location.
This has really bummed her out because this next week the doctors wanted to discuss a transition plan for Myra to go home in 2-3 weeks, depending on how the progress goes.
They have her pretty medicated today so she's real groggy. Because of this, she didn't have PT today and tomorrow is an off day.
One step forward . Two steps back.
