My daddy had to be taken to the emergency room. He is in kidney failure and his function is 29. I. Need to read up on this. My mama forgot how to drink out of a cup. I hope that you all had a better day. I am so overwhelmed with sadness.

@Tampa_girl7 They that wait upon the Lord(trust God) shall renew their strength. They will mount up on wings, as eagles(far above their trouble). They will run and not be weary(continue going forward, in his strength). They will walk and not faint.(never give up) Don't ever forget this, Marie:)

I am so so sorry. Kidney failure can sometimes be reversed. I don't know what your father's medical situation is. Dementia is hard, though. Just keep doing your best for your parents. That's all you can do. And be kind to yourself and make sure you take time to rest and re-charge. You are no good to them if you are exhausted.

Hopefully the fluids will bring his numbers back up.

I am so sorry Marie, the percentage of remaining kidney function at 29% is pretty serious. I am glad you took your father immediately at the emergency room. Take care of yourself Marie.

@amitkokiladitya he is home, but his home nurse is giving him fluids. They will do another test Tuesday. Hopefully his kidney function improves.

I'm sorry. Sometimes things can seem overwhelming, that's true. If your dad's kidney function is at 29, that's not too bad. I have chronic kidney disease and mine hovers around 30 and I am not on dialysis. There are other things to consider, though. I hope he gets better.

Hopefully the fluids they are giving him will help. The frightening thing is the big drop from 51 a month ago to 29 now. I hope that you can continue to keep yours stable.

@Tampa_girl7 That's a big drop. I can understand why you are concerned. Dialysis is a way of life for many people it seems, but things are different for everyone Mine has been fairly stable for a number of years now, only very slowly dropping.
