My daughter's husband is a dialysis patient because he was only born with 1 kidney and it became diseased as a child and has only had 1/2 of it working until it stopped about 2 yrs ago. She had to call for an ambulance this morning ( on her birthday) because he could not breath and his chest was hurting. They ended up transporting him to a hospital in Chattanooga that can perform dialysis, because our small hospital doesn't offer that. They would not tell her anything by phone so she went down there to try to find out what is going on. The only thing they would tell her was they are treating him thru the ER but wouldn't say what for. The nurse from our local dialysis clinic called her and told her his hemoglobin was very low last week when they checked it, soooooooooooo why didn't they do anything or tell anyone then? We don't know if they are giving him a blood transfusion and/or dialysis or what but hopefully she will find out something soon and let us know. Please please be in prayer for her safe travel on this holiday evening and for his treatment.

    Yes he is on a transplant list but the doctors say that the kind of kidney disease he has will eventually attack a new kidney as well so I dont think they are pursuing it as hard for him.
