Dialysis Today

They tweaked Brian’s ventilator to see if they could get his oxygen sat. number to come up. It went up to 83% but most of the time it’s been staying at 82%. The kidney doctor said they are going to put him on dialysis today due to slightly elevated numbers. They will back off if he doesn’t tolerate it well. They also started him on BP med. due to his low BP. He had a temp of 102 so they gave him Tylenol and put ice bags under his arms. I’ve been wiping his forehead with a cool washcloth to help cool him down. (I checked his oxygen sat. just before posting this; it’s at 84/85.) :)
Thank you for praying.

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

    I can’t remember Brian without a smile and a chuckle. He’s one
    of best. He’s a tough guy and will not give in to these troubles.

    “He fears no evil” and that’s for damn sure. Fight on Brother in Arms…..
