Re: Larry

Larry was hooked up to the blood pressure cup on Wednesday to be monitored for 24 hours to see what his BP does. It's up and down during dialysis. It was in the mid 200s when he was first hooked up and this is typical. He has his heart meds after dialysis on treatment days. We have not heard the results from that yet. I originally thought it was to monitor for the transplant surgery, but no. It was for the dialysis nurses who are boggled about why his BP is up and down during treatment.

After 8 months we finally have an appointment with the surgeon for the tenckhoff installation. The surgeon is the same surgeon who installed the last non-working one. We did request a different surgeon this time round, but it wasn't so. We'll see him at the end of the month .. hope to be on PD by Christmas!
