Please excuse all spelling errors as I am typing fast because I need to get to the hospital
I am in need of some advice !!
A really good friend of mine has had kidney failure for years, she's been going to dialasys gfor years, 3 times a week. She does not want a kidney transplant and has signed a DNR and also filled out her health care proxy form with her wishes regarding treatment.
She is now in the hospital because she is VERY lathargic and now has liver failure. She is yellow and very weak. She is only awake for a few seconds then is right back to sleeping. She is on no medications or IV's that would make her like this. All we have been told is, she;s this sleepy because her liver is failing.
Here's my question...
What can they do for her ? Is there any hope she will recover ? Do I need to start my good-byes ?
I need a realistic answer about this please !! The Dr and nurses will say there is always a chance we will just have to see ~ well I wanna be prepared, has anyone been through this ? what are the real chances of her coming out of this ? Any info would be helpful !!
Thank you in advance !!
