No Conclusions

Mom is still critical but now stable. Two hours of dialysis yesterday did not 'kick-start' her kidneys (still in renal failure) but did improve her creatinine(?), etc. Today she had three hours of dialysis. Unfortunately, she is not lucid, and the hospital has had to prevent her, with restraints, from pulling out the dialysis catheter that is in her neck.

Tomorrow the medical team hopes to drain an abscess near or in her sigmoid, which is the site of her infected diverticulitis. One step at a time.
