Again, I'm so sorry that I have not updated this every week as promised. I know you are all concerned about Avery and we really appreciate the love and support from you all.
As I know that many of you are, I'm a very busy mom of 2 girls (and a puppy), wife, friend and full time employee I don't always have the time to update this website as much as I'd like. Please accept my sincere apologies.
On Friday August 18th Avery went for her normal hemodialysis session only to find out the catheter was not working again. She was admitted into the hospital and back in the operating room that night to remove that catheter in her neck. We all decided that with all of the issues we've had with the hemodialysis that it would be best for Avery to have a new peritoneal catheter in her belly.
The surgery went well but in recovery she would get so upset that she
couldn't catch her breath when she was crying. She turned blue and passed out a few times in front of me, it was awful. Well later that evening we fount out that the new catheter did not work. The doctors thought it could have been pushed up against something.
They let Avery go home over the weekend and she returned to the hospital on Monday and Tuesday to have another surgery (9th surgery in two months). This time the new catheter worked.
Avery is home now and recovering.
