Then explain that for the first six to nine months, they will have a pair of catheters hanging out of their chest. They will not be able to bathe properly because if the catheters get wet, the bacteria on them can travel right to the heart. Once the fistula is installed, then things improve. 2) They will have 5 to 6 hours of their life, three times a week, tied up while they are taken to dialysis, receive the treatment, then travel back home. 3) They will feel awful during the treatment. 4) The bill for the treatment is $13,000.00 per month. If they are lucky, their state will cover the cost...after the first three months or so. 5) There is also the toll on their families. Diabetes is much easier to cope with than the alternatives. ;) BTW, you are doing the Lord's work with this. More power to you, Chet! [/quote]
