N’s family has received the news they did not want to hear. Her dad sent an email to family and friends:
Yesterday she was admitted to the hospital with acute kidney failure; her doctors feel that her kidney of two years has reached the end of its serviceable life and has become a liability.
Today she will receive a hemodialysis port – she will have hemodialysis for the immediate future. She will have surgery to remove her transplanted kidney in the days to come.
Needless to say her spirits (and her family’s) are very low at this time as she embraces this reality.
You know what to do.
