Day 2 of dialysis was 3 hours.. the boss big Ron (my dad) came to keep my company but I fell asleep 😴.. I had my dressing changed because it was just oozing everywhere so hopefully tonight is a better nights sleep. Tomorrow I’ll do this all again for 4 hours and hopefully fingers crossed be heading home this weekend. I miss my bed so much. Ive had a lot of visitors which always helps keep your mind off missing home and your own space. Haha excuse the hair and stuff I haven’t combed it in about 4 days but that’s allowed when your in hospital init 😊 #kidneytransplant #dialysis #kidneytransplant #recovery #phosphate #potassium

Do you believe in miracles? Pics are transformation from Dec. 10, 20, 27, and now! Little over a month ago I admitted myself in ER then was taken to DMC ICU where I was diagnosed with septic shock, got dialysis after kidneys failure, the results are lack of circulation to hands and feet. God’s creation of the human being astonishes me on how much we can endure and how He can restore and/or make us new(I’ve been shedding my old skin like crazy). I’m an example of the Power of Prayer! Thank you all for keeping me in your thoughts. God’s plan in my life is not complete, I still have my feet and hands(last picture) to get back to normal, which I have faith they will soon! Again, thank you for your prayers! #transformationtuesday #sepsis #septicshock #kidneyfailure #dialysis #thankful #powerofprayer #miracle #godisgood

Most #ChronicKidneyDisease and #Dialysis patients know that they should try to avoid colas and pepper-type sodas. Yet, patients should also drop some flavored waters, bottled teas, and some drink mixes with "phos" in the ingredients. Chronic Kidney Disease have a large array of other sodas that they can enjoy such as lemon-lime soda, ginger ale, root beer, plain water or some drink mixes that do not contain "phos" in the ingredients. #renaldiet #kidneyfood

Jan 15, 2019: I had to go back to the hospital today to pick a few things up they forgot to send home with dad. I was a little annoyed walking in, griping about having to go back after being there, but leaving I was smiling. You see I spend a lot of time there so I’ve built a lot of relationships. It’s nice having the front desk girls talk hockey and ask about the kids, doctors and nurses and dieticians ask how dad is and how I am. I’m thankful that since I have to spend so much time there, walking in isn’t that bad when you are treated like family ❤️I’m thankful for them, they’ve become who holds me together when I’m at my weakest #thankful #singlemom #hockeymom #laxmom #momof2 #momofateenager #son #daughter #caregiver #daddysgirl #dialysis #amputtee #hospital #qe2 #halifax

Crushing my New Years fitness goals one day at a time. I have had people ask me how I’m able to handle working out, dialysis and all the work with @thelighthousetheater and @dearingstudio. My answer was simple. I just make it a priority. Is it easy, absolutely not, It’s exhausting. However it’s totally worth it. I have made the commitment to grow just a little bit each day. You can do the same thing. I promise you won’t regret it. 😃. . . What are some of your health and fitness goals? How can you spend a little time each day to make them happen? I would love to hear your thoughts.

I did not think that I could get back in shape as a dialysis patient. It is not easy to go to the gym after a dialysis treatment, but it is doable. Currently I am going on my second month of consistent training and cleaner eating habits. The left picture was my beginning photo and the right picture is my current status. The progress is slow but I m slowly shedding my winter body. I started of at 195lbs and I am currently down to 185lbs. I encourage you guys to begin doing some sort of fitness routine, whether it is going to the gym and lifting weight, yoga, so on class, to even just walking. It will make you feel better and I feel like it has helped me tolerate my dialysis treatments a little bit more. Remember be safe and start off slow, and titrate your exercises as you progress into a routine. Take a buddy with you, it is always more motivating when you have a partner there to encourage you. Also they can help you maintain proper form. DM me if you have a questions about cleaner eating habits or an exercise routine that you are considering. #dialysis #dialysispatient #lupusawareness #lupusflare #lupus #kidneytransplant #hypertension #esrd #endstagerenaldisease #fitnessmotivation #keepfighting #dontgiveup #ificandoitsocanyou #noexcuses #nosupplements #getfit #fistula #hispanic #workinprogress #nephrology

For about the first year after my initial diagnosis I was caught up in the victim mentality. Sitting at home, feeling sorry for myself and my situation. The more I sat at home, the more miserable I became. I unfortunately came down with a bad lupus flare up about halfway through my paramedic course and was debating whether I would be able to continue. I was very lucky to have a strong supposed system that encouraged me to finish my course and I am glad i did. I began feeling better about myself and my situation once I began working and feeling productive. I felt it kept my mind occupied. If I had one piece of advised for those who are on dialysis or have a chronic illness. that would be to go do something that makes you happy, dont sit at home and simmer in miserable thoughts. If working makes you happy, find a job that you can tolerate. If volunteering at a soup kitchen makes you happy, then go out and do it. It will make you feel so much better. #dialysis #dialysispatient #esrd #endstagerenaldisease #kidneytransplant #lupus #lupusawareness #lupusflare #keepfighting #hypertension #dontgiveup #hispanic #success #nephrology

This picture was about 6 months after my initial ESRD diagnosis. dialysis was probably one of the biggest changes in have faced til this day. Having lupus, I knew there was a chance that I could end up with renal failure. That day presented itself in 2016. After spending 29 days in the hospital from a lupus flare up and receiving high doses of IV steroids, plasmapheresis, and chemo. No renal function was being restored and I was started on dialysis. #esrd #endstagerenaldisease #dialysis #dialysispatient #lupus #lupusawareness #hypertension #keepfighting #kidneytransplant #lupusflare #dontgiveup #fistula #hispanic #nephrology

I never take this opportunity for granted. Even if I still had to go back on dialysis, a year of freedom is good enough for me.

Here’s a little glimpse on what I’ll be doing 🤗 so far, I’ve seen what manual peritoneal dialysis look like and today I got to learn so much about one of the machines that our patients use! By learning about the machine, I also got to learn a lot about PD itself by hearing some of the terms, such as “drainage” and “ultrafiltration”. PD is actually a lot more than what nursing school made it seem and I’m so excited to dive deeper into this specialty! Can’t wait to share more of my experience very soon 😊 ~ ~ ~ #nursesofinstagram #nursing #nursingschool #nurses #peritonealdialysis #dialysis #pd #peritonealdialysisnurse #dialysisnurse #nursingstudent #newgradrn #newnurse #newjob #newcareer #nurselife #nurse

Ten years ago heaven gained an angel. Marion was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 35 years old. In her early 50's she suffered a massive heart attack two days after burrying her mother. As a result Marion was placed on dialysis for five years and passed away from end stage renal kidney failure. Stress can impact your physical, mental and emotional well-being. ❤️ #mlkidney #godsgrace #healthandwellness #checkonfamily #checkonyourfriends #dialysis #diabetes

“What do you like to do?” Is a question men often ask me in the dating world. My brain quickly skims through a lot of things that the doctors suggest I don’t do any more that I used to do- snowboarding, riding a quad in the desert, and of course horse back riding. Rightfully so I know what a dangerous and costly risk these things can be and so I have had to find new things to enjoy. On Easter 2016 my mom and I decided to go horse back riding. I remember the day down to every detail. We decided we would run the horses and we hadn’t even begun to canter (we were trotting) when I hit the saddle and felt a pain shoot up my spine. It was severe and I thought I was going to vomit or fall off the horse. I called up to my mom telling her I wanted to walk the horses not yet being able to tell her what I was experiencing. The pain subsided but I didn’t feel well. I apologized to my mom because I knew she really want to run the horses. When I got off the horse my blood sugars started to rise into the 200s. Insulin would not bring them down. Later that night I ended up in the hospital for pain and vomiting. The hospital neglected to do proper tests and they basically said it was a gastroparesis flare, never looking at my back. As soon as I got home I called my endo and told him to pls look at my back. He did an MRI which confirmed a compound fracture in my vertebrae-T6 was newly fractured/broken. Then my endo said T11, and T12 are also broken but look to be older fractures. Did you hurt yourself? Did you get in a car accident? Did you fall? I was like ah, no. Thinking I’d definitely remember a fall! My brain scanned my memories which lead me to a year earlier- yes! I did fall! The previous year I had passed out in my bathroom from low bp. The same pain had plagued be as I lay flat, on the cold,hard, bathroom floor. That day I lay there thinking holy fuck, I broke my back. I was like okay, if I can get up and it doesn’t hurt I’m going to my work seminar. If it’s still painful I’ll go to the ER. I managed getting up, and getting in the shower. As severe as the pain was it was now gone so I went to work. Never said anything to anyone, not knowing I had fractured T11 and T 12

Fuck yeah!!! After pulling my meet PR I decided to bump it up a bit. Pulled 496lbs off 2” blocks at 188lbs! The road to 500 is looking pretty clear. Most doctors - “People on dialysis shouldn’t lift over 20lbs.” Me - “Screw that! Put more weight on the bar!” . . . #ishallnotflagnorfail #flagnorfail #kidneyfailure #dialysis #deadlifts #deads #powerlifting #powerliftingmotivation #motivation #inspiration #grind #progress #beastmode #isymfs #mutantnation #gymrat #deadlifttillimdead #gains #liftheavyshit #workoutmotivation #gymmotivation #fitfam #yegfitfam @flagnorfail @danalinnbailey @killrobbailey @mutantnation @rep300 @deadlifttillimdead @powerliftingmotivation @c.t.ali.fletcher @evolve_north @videogamehunter007

Do you believe in miracles? Pics are transformation from Dec. 10, 20, 27, and now! Little over a month ago I admitted myself in ER then was taken to DMC ICU where I was diagnosed with septic shock, got dialysis after kidneys failure, the results are lack of circulation to hands and feet. God’s creation of the human being astonishes me on how much we can endure and how He can restore and/or make us new(I’ve been shedding my old skin like crazy). I’m an example of the Power of Prayer! Thank you all for keeping me in your thoughts. God’s plan in my life is not complete, I still have my feet and hands(last picture) to get back to normal, which I have faith they will soon! Again, thank you for your prayers! #transformationtuesday #sepsis #septicshock #kidneyfailure #dialysis #powerofprayer

https://youtu.be/v72goehCU2M. Watch this video for full details Divine now introduces AV fistula for Dialysis. Call 9811994414 for appointments and further information Hemodialysis is a treatment to filter wastes and water from your blood, as your kidneys did when they were healthy. During hemodialysis, your blood goes through a filter, called a dialyzer, outside your body. A dialyzer is sometimes called an “artificial kidney.” The dialysis machine pumps blood through the filter and returns the blood to your body. During the process, the dialysis machine checks your blood pressure and controls how quickly blood flows through the filter fluid is removed from your body AV fistula The best type of long-term access is an AV fistula. A surgeon connects an artery to avein, usually in your arm, to create an AV fistula. An artery is a blood vessel that carries blood away from your heart. A vein is a blood vessel that carries blood back toward your heart. When the surgeon connects an artery to a vein, the vein grows wider and thicker, making it easier to place the needles for dialysis. The AV fistula also has a large diameter that allows your blood to flow out and back into your body quickly. The goal is to allow high blood flow so that the largest amount of blood can pass through the dialyzer. #dialysis #kidney failure

I actually do taste research, not just make food/cocktails, and play with dogs. New paper coming out! Dysgeusia means “taste abnormality.” People on dialysis experience it a lot. We want to know why, so we can help. #kidneydisease #dialysis #taste #dysgeusia #science

As kidney function drops in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients they may notice that protein foods, such as eggs begin to lose their appeal and sometimes can even taste funny. CKD patients need "calories and quality protein" to feel their best. Chock-full of protein, eggs are a quick and easy way for people with CKD to get their daily fill. In fact a previous study found that phosphorus levels declined in #CKD patients, specifically those on #dialysis, who ate egg whites instead of meat for one meal a day. #renaldiet

2009 vs. 2019. Vivir en diálisis vs. vivir trasplantado. ¡Estoy tan agradecido de haber tenido la posibilidad de trasplantarme! Hay pacientes que no tienen a ningún ser querido dispuesto a donarles, o que esperan décadas en la lista de espera o cuya enfermedad hace inviable un trasplante.

Monday was my 1st day of peritoneal dialyis! The first 2 cycles of #PD (fill and draw, respectively) went off without a hitch. However; the draining process was very painful and took a lot out of me. After 3 rounds totaling 5 hours, I am slightly nervous about doing this everyday of the week 😕 #peritoneal #dialysis #CKD #GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/6od3uio

Ashley underwent surgery where they placed a catheter into her abdomen. This is for access site to begin peritoneal dialysis today. Doctors are hopeful that dialysis will be temporary and that it will aid in helping her kidneys repair themselves. There is a chance she can go home tomorrow and be looked after by home health care nurses. Please continue to pray that this works and that Ashley will not need a kidney transplant. Either way Ashley will be down for quite some time. Please continue to pray for Ashley and if you are able to help I know Ashley is very appreciative. Information to help is in Ashleys Bio. I wish everyone a blessed day! #lupuswarrior #kidneyfailure #dialysis #tlc #90dayfiance

We were created with the ability to improve the quality of life for someone living the difficult restricted life on dialysis. Becoming a living kidney donor is the most selfless and thoughtful gift. A living kidney donor and their recipient can live a perfectly normal life with just one kidney 💚. Although the recipient will have to take several medications, that’s minimal compared to living on dialysis. . . . #livingkidneydonor #livingkidneydonation #inneed #hope #kidneytransplant #kidneydonor #kidneywarrior #lupuswarrior #tuesday #help #kidneyexchangeprogram #selfless #actofkindness #kindnessmatters #lovecures #dialysis #dialysissucks #askingforafriend #hero #godcreated #youcanhelp #dialysissucks #shareyourspare💚 #giftoflife #thebigask #thebigaskthebiggive #giving #amazing #willing #kidneyfailure

Now that I’m on dialysis, there’s more food items that I can’t eat anymore 😔 but I like my rabbit food too, I always have! Here’s some romaine lettuce, tomatoes, turkey and ham with ranch dressing. I later added croutons. Yum! #Brisaeats #healthyeating #healthyliving #dietrestrictions #diabetes #dialysis #life #greens #vegetables #yum #nomnomnom #goodfood

Conheça o Folheto dedicado à Água e ao Sódio e os conselhos para controlo de ambos na sua alimentação. Água A restrição da ingestão de água é muito importante para quem faz diálise. Quando o consumo de líquidos é excessivo, estes acumulam-se no organismo, aumentando o peso e provocando sobrecarga para o coração, o que vai causar edemas (inchaços),hipertensão arterial e até insuficiência cardíaca. A necessidade de remover grandes quantidades de líquidos extra pode também tornar o seu tratamento de diálise desconfortável com hipotensões e mal-estar geral. Sódio O sódio está presente em muitos alimentos, sendo o sal de cozinha a sua principal fonte. A ingestão em excesso de sódio produz sede intensa, aumento de peso (pela ingestão excessiva de líquidos e retenção destes no organismo), hipertensão arterial, edemas (inchaços das pernas, da cara, etc.). Toda esta sobrecarga de líquidos pode dar origem a uma insuficiência cardíaca e acumular-se nos pulmões, o que lhe vai provocar dificuldade em respirar e pode pôr em risco a sua própria vida. Portanto, é fundamental restringir o sódio na sua alimentação. Nunca dispense os conselhos do seu médico/nutricionista.

DID YOU KNOW that people can live a normal and healthy life with just one kidney? I am living proof! So why are we born with two kidneys? To share the love and be a hero? When someone goes into kidney failure, it usually affects both kidneys, like me. I currently have three kidneys in me, but I am only functioning on one strong 💪one! 💫 #themoreyouknow . . . . #kidneytransplant #kidneyrecipient #transplant #onekidneystrong #donatelife #organdonation #kidney #kidneydisease #pkd #beadonor #beahero #savealife #kidneywarrior #livingwithonekidney #kidneystrong #donatelifeca #knowledgeispower #themoreyouknow #dialysis #dialysissucks #kidneybeans #medicaltechnology #livingdonor #organdonationsavedmylife #secondchances
