Well that wasn't fun... So once in a blue moon, I tend to "crash." In this case I finished treatment, pulled needles, bandaged up, and it hit me like a truck. Light headed, almost passed out, hot (seriously I was drenched in sweat) and therefore needed oxygen and cold towels. Eh, it happens.

One of those days where you just don't care. However, I remind myself that ...i'm God damn awesome and remind others that you're allowed to have a blah day once in a while. However if it's constant then i don't need your shit negative energy.

#Kidneyfailure #dialysislife skin. I’m dark but know I’m more grayish dark than tan because of the effects of the disease and all the meds. That Includes #nails, hair etc... so when I’m able to get a manicure and straighten it up and make it pretty it always helps. Plus the pampering is always #healing 💚 #maribelskidneystory #kidneywarrior #valleyfeversurvivor #spoonielife #pinkandgold #kidneyproblems

"What the hell did you do?!" Yes that's been the reaction to me shaving. Any guesses if I get carded sooner rather than later?

Artificial kidney C.1984 made in Japan. These were meant to be used as a temporary stand in. You can see the thousands of little tubes in the system used to filter out impurities. I got this from a retired doctor that used to use this in class to teach students.

Just found a news article at my mom‘s house about my dad and his kidney disease. This article is from 1972 (10 years before I was born). Due to his disease (Alport Syndrom) his kidneys failed when he was 24 years old and they gave him an „artificial kidney“ which was a machine to do dialysis at home back then. This thing saved his life back then until he got a transplant. My dad passed away when I was 18 and I miss him every single day, so finding these things about him and his story means the world to me. Only a few days ago I read an article about a real artificial kidney and how this can change so many people‘s lives in the near future (https://www.meddeviceonline.com/doc/world-s-first-implantable-artificial-kidney-could-enter-human-trials-by-0001)
It‘s incredible how these things have changed since 1972 and I am so very grateful for the ongoing researches and progress in this field and the opportunities that are existing nowadays. This is too late for my dad, but his biggest wish and hope for his family was that there would be this kind of progress soon enough for his kids and grandkids to benefit from it if it will be necessary. I know that where ever he is right now, he is beyond thrilled and I am too. Like we‘ve come full circle.... #memories #family #dad #comefullcircle #kidneydiseaseawareness #kidneydisease #kidneyfoundation #research #progress #kidneyresearch #alport #alportsyndrome #alportsyndromefoundation #alportsyndromeawareness #alportsyndromefacts #artificialkidney

Saw this picture today and it blows me away how far medical technology has come but we still have so far to to go. The one picture is of the first dialysis machine from around 1945. It looks like it was made in someone’s basement. No wonder nobody lived very long on dialysis back then. Now, within the next couple of years we will have an artificial implantable kidney. That will be a life saver for so many! .
