Sorry that I have neglected to update you on what has been going on. Dad was admitted to the hospital on the 7th of August. They decided to start him on dialysis and he is feeling much better than he was. With dialysis, the best he can expect is approximately 15% kidney function, which is way better than less than the 5% he was at near the beginning of the month. Please continue to pray that the dialysis continues to work. It is very draining, but the next day he feels much better. Right now he is having dialysis done three times a week at the local hospital, and it takes about 4 hours after he waits 30-90 minutes to be seen. He is able to drive himself to have the treatment, so that helps Mom a lot. They start training next week for in-home dialysis and the training lasts two weeks.
