The day finally came! Brandon had his last dialysis session in the hospital first thing this morning, and he was released to come home this afternoon. He still doesn’t feel as well as he was feeling a week ago, but he’s home! His kidney values have gotten better with the help of dialysis, but his blood pressure is still problematic. We just hope that the kidneys start helping out and keep the values going in the right direction over the next couple of days before he has outpatient dialysis again on Monday. The doctors are also hopeful that the blood pressure issues are tied to the kidney issues, and they will work themselves out at the same time.
Avery was so surprised to see her daddy come home, and she gave him the biggest hug! That alone should have lowered his blood pressure! Our goal and prayer for the coming week is that he finishes dialysis completely and gets the catheter removed so he and Avery can play together and he can feel like himself again.
