    Past couple trips to dialysis the center sent her to the hospital because she was turning blue on them.
    first time she was in for a few days. they drained fluid from her lung cavity then sent her home.

    This time they decided to install a drain tube.
    She had surgery last Monday, I've Never seen her this bad for this long after surgery.
    Been on Dialysis the better part of a year.

    4 hours for an estimated 2 hour surgery to drain a liter fluid from her lung cavity
    and insert a drain tube.

    Turning blue, blood oxygen level anywhere from 50-80. Pretty much out of it until she screams out in pain.
    They can hardly medicate her without dropping her blood pressure. Doing a slow form of dialysis
    also to keep her blood pressure from tanking. She has been suffering on and off with unknown blood loss.
    never seen her this bad before.

    I have a bad feeling I am going to get a call.....
