Thank God for small victories!
I was able to eat a normal (but very small) meal and shower today for the first time since Saturday morning. It's amazing how these very small things can make you feel more human.
Kidney function continues to deteriorate, despite the above good things. Subsequently, I am retaining so much fluid, it's difficult to move or breathe. I joke and say I look like Patrick Star from Spongebob. I'm anemic and very easily exhausted, and my patience is wearing very thin with all of the dozens of physicians, respiratory therapists, nurses, and dietitians that parade in and out of here starting at 6 a.m.
There is no estimate of when I will get out of here. So I wait and try to heal.
