First Day of Outpatient Dialysis

After a wonderful day at home with the family, we are starting our new outpatient routine.  We arrived first thing this morning.  They took her vitals in clinic, and then we headed up to the 7th floor.  She just started dialysis around 10 am.  Dialysis typically runs for 3 hours.  It takes around a half hour more to disconnect the tubing and get her ready to go.  Tomorrow we come back to clinic for labs and chemo.  Please keep praying that her kidney starts working and we see some wet diapers!
