No permaport operation for John!

Hi journal peoples!  Today was a good day!  There was no operation for a permanent port for dialysis for John, and there probably won't be one.  Strange what a day can do.  Perhaps not strange, as there are so many of you praying, after all!  

The kidney specialists decided not to put in the permaport because they did another type of test on John and decided that his kidneys were functioning better now.  They decided not to put in the port, and perhaps they wouldn't ever have to put in a permaport.  His kidneys can perhaps recover some day!  

Meanwhile, he is still going to dialysis at least four days a week.  Maybe it's five, I lose track.  They are trying to get it down to three days a week.  Uhhhmmm, can he have some more of you alls' prayers?  I know everybody is praying, but I mean specifically that the dialysis wouldn't be so hard on him.  He is having a really hard time on dialysis.  He feels real ill after dialysis.  He shakes a lot.  The doctors are trying to figure out why.  Maybe it has something to do with the balance of electrolytes they said, or the toxins.  He is also very tired after dialysis.  This is of course common.  But suffice it to say on dialysis day he feels pretty bad the whole day.  

Anyway, even though he felt yucky today after dialysis, I think we will call this a victory day. :)

Love you all for your support, prayer and love,

Krissy :)

      I am so grateful you had a good day.  The dialysis is very tiring for people so I hope John won't have to do it for long but that goodness there is something they can do when peoples kidneys don't function well.  Hopefully it will get better and easier on him as more toxins are removed.
