We have started back on the program. We will only go through this week. Hopefully it will be enough. Three days off the program set us back some, but it isn't a total washout.
Saturday, John started on the grape juice. We have toned down a couple of things. For one, I haven't been doing the fomentations. I may though if he keeps from being anxious or up and down. The last couple of nights he has been doing great. Second, I haven't been making him stand up during sunbathing. I just have him sit the whole time in such a position that he gets most of his body in the sun. I may have him switch sides, but that is just getting him up and switching chairs. His colds showers aren't as "cold" and they only last literally 2 seconds. He also gets to sleep a little more than he had been. He is asking if he can have crackers, salt, Mrs. Dash, pepper, popcorn, "anything?". He asks about every 5 minutes.
He is not having the diarrhea like he did before. His sugars are more normal, except tonight they were 219. I was not in the best of moods yesterday. It was probably because I usually fall apart after a crisis, like John being in the hospital. He came home Friday evening. He weighed 248 lbs coming out of the hospital. They did 2 dialysis treatments in a 12 hour period on Wednesday. They pulled off 8.5 kilos of fluid. That is 17 lbs.
This morning, he did not want to get up. He got mad that I insisted he get up. He went back to bed and slept another 3 hours. This afternoon, he is up and continues to ask for something. the list is above. Otherwise it has been a pretty good day. He does say his side hurts about where his kidneys are. I am hoping that is because they are trying to work. Not sure what else it could be. It is only on one side.
