Such a surreal moment right now.. after over a decade of trying to get into the medical field.. I can finally say I'm In. Just got the call that I am hired and will start my career at Davita Dialysis! πŸ™ŒπŸ» #career #positivevibes #medicalfield #davita #davitadialysis #dialysis #dialysistechnician #pct #patientcaretech #goodday #surreal #goodvibes #friday #friyay #sostoked #stillcantbelieveit #letsgetthisstarted #2017ismyyear #manifest #abundance #positivemindset #instalike #instagood #selfie #fridayselfie #scrublife #scrubbedout #picoftheday #doubletap #kinghashtag

β€œDuring my pregnancy there were signs of something wrong; but on all the ultrasounds she looked perfect. We decided to not have an amniocentesisΒ Β done. Which is a decision I wrestle with myself about. Although I'm not sure it would of made much of a difference in her treatment.
.
After she was born, we found ourselves in small ER room being told my child was gravely ill; the doctors weren't sure of why.Β Β When it was finally pinpointed to her kidneys, I was warned not to β€œGoogle” what they suspected she had. How could I not!? The first sentence I read was "Most children diagnosed do not make it past the first year."
.
Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome is a rare, genetic condition that causes the filters in the kidneys to not work properly, if at all. And in her case, they did not at all. She was spilling everything, good and bad, in her urine. We were transferred to a different hospital with a Nephrologist that had more experience with the condition. It soon became our second home.
.
She stopped responding to her treatment plan, so at 5 months old she had both of her kidneys removed, and both types of dialysis catheters to be placed. This was the best choice for her to have any chance at surviving.
.
The next couple months were filled with highs and lows with several hospital stays, but it became less frequent. We were finally settling in to a new normal. And then she turned one! The day we weren't sure she would make it to.
.
Emerson is a spunky feisty little force. She receives dialysis every night at home. And is 1.5 kilos away from being eligible for her life saving kidney transplant. Currently she's on about 10 different medications daily, as well as a growth hormone injection each night. You would never know she was sick just by looking at her.
.
Her journey has caused many delays, primarily physically. But she has 4 therapists who she sees weekly and every day she grows stronger. She will be turning two this August and we are forever grateful for every day we get.
.
I have times where I find myself in deep waves of grief. But someone once told me, β€œTo ask what, not why”  And it has changed so much for us."

I will not miss you. See you never 😘 #fistula #dialysis will be gone #Monday πŸ˜… serugia para remover mi fΓ­stula yayyy πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

They say a parent shouldn't bury a child. But who ever said it will be easier to bury a parent or the love of your life? How is it ever easy to say goodbye? They are wrong. It's never easy to let go, no matter how strong your faith is or how much you understand the lesson that you are taught as a child that with life, there is death. Listening to my dad tell me tonight that he doesn't want to become weaker and he doesn't want his ailment to overcome him and make him suffer, hurts like hell. Listening to him tell me that he will fight as much as he can but when he can't fight anymore, he will tell us when he's ready to go. How does one wait for that day? My King, my ride or die, my soldier. Ofc, I don't want you to suffer and I want to hold on as long as I could but wouldn't it also be selfish of me? I can't imagine losing a child but I don't want to imagine losing a parent - my dad. I already lost the love of my life, I can't lose the only other man that I know loves me unconditionally. I wish I could take away your pain and sickness. I wish I could bring my love back to me. But I can't. I guess the only thing I can do, is hope that it's not goodbye, but see you again. No one could truly understand and appreciate life for what it is unless you've loved and lost. And I'm not talking about those heartbreaks of those alive. But those "heart-loss". The ones where you can't call someone to hear their voice just one more time. The ones where you can't look on social media to see what they up to and if they're ok. The ones where you can't randomly see them at an event or common location. The ones where you can't see a mutual friend to find out about them. I'm talking about the loss, where you can't get any comfort other than building and keeping your faith strong. We all may seem like we have it together but trust me, time heals nothing when you lose someone and time means everything when you trying to hold on. I wish that I don't have to bury my mom or dad because I don't know if I will survive without them. It's already an on-going battle without one person. πŸ˜”πŸ’”πŸ˜’ #KidneyFailureSucks #Dialysis #Parents

Another positive review on Port Pillow. Makes me so happy 😁 that I can help even in a small way #portpillows #chemotherapy #diabetic #dialysis

Today the lord Blew my mind again. Also,after praying to work in all of the Nursing settings before starting Nursing School.Next, I have worked with eight different Neurology patients before the lord placed me on the Neurology Unit. I took care of Hospice,Rehab, Assisted & Independent Living patients etc . My Uncle (bottom left picture) came down with Kidney failure a couple years ago and I'm praying that the lord heal him. I love how he is always in a great mood inspite of battling with Kidney failure. I applied to Davita Dialysis on August 3, 2016 (Bottom Photo Red Dress) I remember being so excited to interview for a tech job. Last but not least, I didn't get the job but I didn't let it stop me. The lord blessed me with a Patient Care Tech job on Neurology on January 24,2017. I only work twice a Month. I'm so Glad I was obedient to God from the Age of 17-25 years old. Everything have not been the best but my faith have brought me a mighty long way. As I was driving my Pelvic fracture patient back home after Therapy we got out and I met her Neighbors for the First time. She told her Neighbor all about me and how sweet I was and she said, I'm a Dialysis Nurse you can come Shadow me anytime you want 😱😒. The Dialysis place is really close to my house. I wrote this for anybody rushing ahead of God don't. I get to Shadow a Dialysis Nurse and work in the Hospital on Neurology God is so faithful. The Holy Spirit is never wrong. He sent me to this particular patient to get tutored on Math, learn about Pelvic fractures and meet a Dialysis Nurse. "He said, to them: it is not for you to know the times or dates the father has set by his own authority" Acts 1:7 #Godsbestplan #Histimimgisperfect #Dialysis #Excited #Blessed πŸšΆπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸ½πŸ“–πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€βš•οΈπŸ’‰πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’šπŸ˜˜

Jake and Brett doing his treatment while watching a movie. Treatments have been going good.
Today was his monthly nephrologist visit which went good since starting home hemo diaylsis. We discussed having his fitscula looked at to make certain it looks ok, and having his PD catheter removed and hernia repaired. Hopefully we hear something soon to schedule it. I know he'd like to get back to work as soon as he is able.

I'm breathing, guess I'm still alive
But I'm sinking in your eyes tonight
I'm shaking, cause I miss the high
I'm regretting that we let this feeling die
Well if I could change my ways, I would
You know that I'd stop these thoughts if I could

I was thinking today about being a #kidneypatient, and all the 'waiting' we do. We are told we have #kidneydisease and they will fail. So we 'wait'. They tell us we will need dialysis, at some point. So we 'wait', for 'that point'. We become dialysis patients and wait to hear we are on the 'transplant list'. Whilst in the meantime, we do an awful lot of 'waiting' whilst undergoing #dialysis. And 'wait', for some people, many many years for 'the call', or offer of a #donorkidney. If we are blessed, we get a kidney, in the back of our minds, we wait for it to fail. And 'wait' to start dialysis again if you're unlucky. Then the 'waiting' starts all over again. Ok I got it now. That's why we are called 'patiences', OK it all makes ❣️#kidneyclever
