Thanks for sharing all of that with me. I am so sorry about the miscarriage. I know how it is to have a miscarriage. Mine wasnt my kidneys though. I was pregnant in my tubes, the doctors said that if i wouldnt of miscarried it would of killed me in the long run. My husband now is on kidney dialysis. He is a sever diabitic and he was taking plavic which caused him to have a stroke which shut his kidney's down. He to has dialysis for three days a week, but he is total disabled as he is also bling from his diabities. I am his seeing eye dog as he calls me he holds on to me to go anywhere. I also work a full time 42 hour a week job on top of taking care of my husband. So it is a full time job for me. I want to try to have a baby but with my husbands health issues. Dont think it would be a good idea.View Thread

That sounds very familiar to me because i am in the same boat with my husband right now. he has diabities is a smoker has been for about 30 years, and they are fixin to start dialysis on him. They have already put the shunt in for the dialysis. I am scared as well but i know that it is in God's hands but i two am like you and dont want to lose him early. We have only been married for 2 1/2 years now and he is my life my everything i cant and dont want to lose him. My husband after they told him the news about the dialysis said he wanted to quit. He was in the hospital already when they told him that he had several many strokes, and went completly numb on his left side. He talked to his pcp and his pcp told him to try to quit on his on instead of taking something to quit because anything he could give him to quit could cause another stroke. Keep me posted about your husband and you both are in my prayers. Thanks for listening.View Thread
Is anyone know any info on dialysis, what all is involved and everything? my husband just has been told about a week ago that he is going to have to have dialysis they have done put the shunt in his arm. Then he went to see his regular doctor yesterday, and he called us today and said his kidney count was way worse and wanted him to go straight to the er. Of course him being a stuborn man he wouldnt go he had me call his kidney doctor. His kidney doctor got his blood work faxed to him and he made him an appointment for monday. So any info would be great. View Thread
He has medicare. He is getting disability and when he got approved for that after us fighting with them they gave him medicare. i will keep that in mind. I try to be there for him and stay strong sometimes it is hard but i try.View Thread
Thanks that does help me. I was worried about how well the dialysis was going to help him. The doctors said that he might not even qualify for a transplant because of how badly controlled his diabieties was. They have finally got them under a little bit of controll. I guess what scares me the most is that i may lose my husband to kidney failure. that terrifies me very much. i dont want to even leave him and go to work but i have to make money to pay bills.View Thread
