Jane Suffers From End Stage Renal Failure.
She Has Had Many Setbacks Complications And Challenges Over The More Than 6 Years Since This Started. But She Continues To Be Positive And Still Has Her Smile.
Jane Is Currently At Manor Care Lancaster After A 6 Week Stay At Select Specialty Hospital York, And 4 Weeks In The Iicu At Lancaster General.the short of it is that she broke her right leg in two places in october. multiple complications including calciphylaxis and an infection in her left leg, low blood preassure have greatly slowed the healing process.whiledoing rehab for the broken right leg, it broke again (the tibia and fibula) at a new place. she continues to have her leg in a cast. she is in a wheelchair.
She Will Have To Stay At Manor Care As We Have No Way To Get Her Into The House.we have started to work with uds (united disability services) on a way to get her into the house, this may take a while and the preliminary cost looks to be in 5 figures. ugh!
June 2013this is a problem that will not go away anytime soon. we have seen the rhumatologist and there is a shot she can get for the bone density problems. however her parathyroid, vitamin d, and calcium levels must all be just rite for her to get the shot. this is a big problem for a dialysis patient. we have to work with jane’s kidney doctor to get the levels correct. she had a cast for three weeks, they removed it did ex ray’s and was healing well. they put it in a cast for three more weeks, same result. again it will be in a cast for 4 more weeks till july. we will go see dr. carroll the first week in july for a check up and to jane's leg is healing well but because of her low bone density she still cannot put any wieght on either of them. explore getting a custom brace made for it. a brace would allow her to put some weight on her leg and get around some, and hopefull prevent it from breaking again. considering the circumstances jane is in good spirits. the dogs take turns going in to see her on sundays. also the people at dialysis are going out of thier way to take care of jane and keep her comfortable. we also appreciate the concern and support from dr. carroll. here are all the details as they happened, covering the last 6 years.
In Late April Of 2007jane was diagnosed with end stage renal diseases, or acute kidney failure. due to her health problems, she has not been able to work at the deli since april 27 2007. her kidney problems have lead several conditions/ complications that have ruled out the possibility of a transplant, at least anytime in the near future.
May 2007jane undergoes kidney dialysis at the health campus three days a week for three hours each. the effects of her kidneys not being able to filter out calcium and other things have taken a toll on her weight, and her ability to move around. jane started the process of getting a kidney transplant. she has been accepted into the program at pinnicle health in harrisburg. dr. harold yang is supposed to be the best in the area, and has some of the best transplant acceptance rates on the east coast if not the country. we have spoken with a couple of people who have had transplants there and have nothing but good to say about dr. yang. both of her sisters have undergone testing to be able to donate a kidney.
August 2007she had an operation to create a fistula in her left arm. a fistula reworks the veins and and artery to allow for better blood flow during dialysis. it is where they have to stick her with the needles. the very big needles.
October 2007we had to take jane to the emergency room with a very high fever. we found out the next day she had a staph infection. a mrsa infection. apparently from her permcath, which had to be removed. she then had antibiotics for 8 weeks.
In Late July 2008jane was rushed to the hospital from the dialysis unit. she was diagnosed with a abscess in her brain for which she had a nuerosurgery . she had been on the transplant schedule for september 30th.
In Late October 2008jane had seizures, we again rushed her to the hospital. several mri's over the course of a month of so concluded that she had another abscess. each neurosurgury requires at least 3 mri's. after each mri she needs to do dialysis for 3 days in a row to get the contrast agent out of her system.
December 2008a second nuerosurgery cleaned out the abscess. 11 weeks of intravenous antibiotics followed (twice a day for an hour each). also a white blood cell scan. those antibiotics really knocked her down. the whole ordeal really took a toll and her weight and stamina, it took about a year for jane to get back to what is i guess the new normal.
2009thankfully was less event full than the prior two years. jane did however have some problems with her fistula that required a surgery and 2 more procedures. we spent more than a year trying to get some weight back on and getting her blood levels back to where they would be acceptable for a transplant. dry. yang required jane to go six strait months with an albumin level at 3.0 or above. during this time jane had been put on a suppressive antibiotic by the doctors at infection specialists of lancaster. in the fall dry yang told us he had consulted with his infectious disease specialists and that jane could stop taking the antibiotics.
February/march 2010jane completed her re testing for the transplant, and her blood levels were where they needed to be. her kidney doctor even called dr. yang and told him that jane was ready, and it was time. however the donor was dragging her feet.
April 2010she was again diagnosed with another abscess (in a different place this time). so a third nuerosurgery followed. and another white blood cell scan. that is three brain on april 4th i had to take jane in to the hospital. surgeries in 21 months. she came home on the 16th and is doing amazingly well. we would like to thank dr. monacci and dr. greene as well as all the wonderfully people at lancaster general for the fine care that jane received. we were close to getting jane back on the transplant schedule, but at this point we have no idea when she will be off antibiotics. once again the transplant is on hold. i need to point out that dr. yang told her to stop the suppressive antibiotics.
July 2010followed by appointments with the infectious disease doctor, the neurosurgeon, and her general surgeon. jane just had another white cell scan last week , she has to have a mri the first week of july. also we have an appointment with dr. yang the transplant doctor. what all this means is by the end of july we will know if jane is still being considered for a transplant or not. every doctor we saw said she is fine, there are no sign of infection and each released her. but no one can pinpoint exactly where the abscesses came from. dr. greene ordered jane to stay on a suppressive antibiotic probably for the rest of her life. duane the physicians assistant told jane never to stop taking the antibiotics no matter who says to.
August 2010dr. yang does not believe jane is cured of the infection. he put us on hold for at least a year maybe two to make sure the infection does not come back. dr. yang did give us the name and contact information of an infectious disease expert at the university of pennsylvania. he said if she tells him it's ok to do the transplant he will do it.
September - November 2010in another twist of this saga on slept. 18th jane fell in front of the house and broke her right femur. she had yet another operation to fix the leg with 2 steel rods and some screws on sept 19th. dr. essis also ordered a bone scan. 6 days in the hospital, 10 days at the rehab hospital, 3 more days in the hospital for a second operation ( the neurosurgeon checked a wound on her forehead and removed a titanium plate), 13 more days in the rehab hospital, then 12 days with our friends at camp flikinger. six weeks after falling she came home to her beloved cooper and lola. jane is still underwent 4 weeks of therapy and has to use a walker to get around the house.
April 2011she fell around 9:30am and i came home and found her at 2:10pm. she broke her right leg above the knee and her jane fell in the bathroom on april 20th and injured both of her knees/legs. left just below the knee. they were what the doctors called good breaks and did not require surgery. they did require jane to have a brace on each leg. after 5 days in the hospital they transferred her to manor care. jane did therapy at manor care 5 and 6 days a week. july 6th dr. rogers told us she could get rid of the braces and put full weight on both legs. in the mean time her left ankle started to bother her. after another visit to dr. rogers and an x ray, he determined that she had a cracked bone in her ankle and ordered her off of it for two weeks. the social workers started the process of applying for jane to get a stair lift for the inside of our house. after two site visits by the reps from abilities in motion, they recommended a lift for the inside and the outside. abilities in motion submitted paperwork to request these from whatever agency they deal with.
August 2011she came home from manor care aug 30 and continued her therapy and rehab at home. she is thrilled to be home with the dogs. she has a horrible time with the steps and i was going home each day to help her down the steps at 10:30 so i could get back to open the restaurant. we are still waiting for news on the stair lifts. it seems the agency would only grant the funds if she had to have the lift to go home, and since she was home, she was . abilities in motion have submitted the paperwork to two other agencies, and jane has had two interviews and a visit from a person from the office of aging. but no news yet on the lift.
September 2011therapy has apparently reinjured her right leg and she is having a very hard time getting around. she can't do steps and is living in the living room and sleeping on the couch. she can't do steps so we are taking her in and out of the house through the back door, across the patio, across the back yard out the gate and down an embankment. not an ideal situation. jane went to the rhumatologist on sept 20th and was sent to get an x ray. it took until the 26th for the rhumatologist to get back to us and tell us we had to go see the orthopedic doctor. we went to the orthopedic doctor on the 28th and he wanted an mri. we had to wait till the oct 7th for the mri. just for the record. when jane calls abilities in motion about the lifts, all she gets is a voicemail. in the middle of everything else, jane had her yearly appointment at pinnicle health, with doctor yang on the 12th of september. he informed us that jane was no longer in his mind a candidate for a transplant. in the fact that jane must be on antibiotics indefinably, he won’t do a transplant. he is also taking jane off of the transplant waiting list. looking at the whole thing, and taking in what dr. yang said, it seems to me that he is a doctor not interested in curing the sick, but turning good numbers. we are evaluating what jane's options are, and we will move on. when jane saw dr. adismuielle (no i did not spell it correctly), the rhumatologist on the 20th. we also found out the results of the bone scan. 10 months after it was done. and the bone density level is extremely bad. to me this explains the broken ankle. if the therapists at manor care knew the results of that test they would not have been as aggressive. it is not their fault. she wants to give jane a new drug to help with the bone loss but it's going to take a little time to get her calcium and vitamin d levels correct for the shot. it only took the rhumatologist, the kidney doctor and the nurse practitioner at dialysis about 10 days to agree on the vitamin d and get us a prescription.
October 2011jane had an appointment with the orthopedic doctor on the 14th. she got a call from the doctors office and found that she had been referred to yet another orthopedic doctor and we go there on oct 18th. dr william parish is her new orthopedic doctor, this guy is like the specialists specialist. his office is only 2 miles from the shop. we saw dr. parish on the 18th and he ordered a couple of tests and had us come back on the 25th. dr.parish has determined jane has two brown tumors in her right leg. they are caused by calcium and bone loss and can have the same effect as a stress fracture. the good part is that jane has been off of her right leg for a month and that is the correct thing to do. kidney failure patients need to cut as much calcium as possible. dr. parish we think has put all the pieces of the puzzle together. because jane is not getting enough calcium through her stomach, her body is stealing it from her bones. her parahyperthyroid level is at 65, it's supposed to be above 300. the vitamin d should get those levels up, and balance things out. we have been told by the lady from abilities in motion that the stair lifts are in the hands of the office of aging. november 2011 it took 4 weeks for three doctors to get together and decide on who was going to prescribe the vitamin d. also the orthopedic doctor wants two prescribe a drug to address the hyper parathyroid problem, the kidney doctor said no. the problem has been passed on to the kidney doctor. that was three weeks ago and as of thanksgiving we are still waiting.
December 2011jane has been released by the wound clinic for the problem with her left leg. dr. parish says her right leg is good enough to start light therapy. jane wanted to wait until after the holidays to restart (ugh!) we are also told that the lady with the office of aging has all the paper work that is needed for the stair lift. i guess now we have to wait until it gets processed. still have not gotten the shot to help with the bone density problem.
February 2012thanks to a few of our friends, jane was able to come in for mardi gras. lunch and dinner monday and lunch on fat tuesday. she really enjoyed spending time at the shop and seeing many old friends.
March 2012jane has a new problem with her right thigh. she has an infected sore that is related to her calcium problems (calciphylaxis). jane thought it was from her nieces dog jumping on her at christmas. but it has not gone away. she is currently being seen by dermatology associates and dr. flood at the the wound clinic. it doesn't seem to hamper her moving around. however calciphylaxis is very serious and everything else has to take a back seat until we get this under control.
April 2012the calciphylaxis sore is responding to treatment and has gotten much better. dr, flood estimates it will take another two months for it to heal. calciphylaxis is caused in part by high phosphorous levels. to get this under control jane has had to really watch her diet. her phosphorous levels have always been too high manly because of her love of things she is supposed to limit (cheese). we greatly lowered her phosphorous, however now her protein levels are suffering and she has lost weight and developed swelling in her lower legs.
June 2012we purchased a stair lift and are in the process of converting it, so it will fit in the house. when it is working, jane will be able to go upstairs for the first time since september. june 1st we went to see a doctor pulliuon at the heart group about jane's low blood pressure and fast heart beat concerns. the calciphylaxis sore is doing well enough so the visiting nurse has stopped coming to check it. most know that lancaster general has sold the health campus dialysis center, funny thing that they keep buying up must any other practices they can find, but sell this unit. lancaster general claims to be non profit???? many patients at the center are upset about this, however all the staff was retained and the care seems to be the same so far. jane trusts and likes almost everyone on staff there and hopes they continue.
July 2012the calciphylaxis sore is almost healed only one or two visits to the wound clinic, she will be done. dr parish the orthopedic doctor told us we do not need to see him anymore. the dr pulliuon changed her blood pressure medicine and things seem to bee a little better. jane is very much looking forward to spending the afternoon with her whole family on the fourth of july. she has been stopping into the restaurant some nites after dialisys.
August 2012the stair lift is in and operational, however when it gets to the top jane has to walk to the back of the house with her walker. she has not been up to doing this yet.
September 2012dr parish said she has the worst bone density he has seen in 22 years.
October 2012since lancaster general sold the kidney dialisys center to davita there have been several changes. one of the changes is that they have programmed the machines differently . they are apparently set too automatically take off three pounds, jane just cannot tolerate that. she has had several very bad treatments over the last month the worst i've seen in 5 years. that is why she hasn't been seen at the shop in september. i do want to thank mary brown and ginger at the dailysys unit for working on this problem over the last two weeks. it is getting better but is not where we need it to be just yet. we are waiting for jane to feel up to more activity. we have a large to do list for her. a trip to the rhumatologist to try to address her bone density problem, therapy to get her legs moving better, and maybe searching for the right surgeon to get a second or third opinion on wether she is a candidate for a transplant. she still currently has to get around in a wheel chair. the rapidly approaching winter has us a bit concerned about getting her out the back of the house. supposedly she has been approved for a stair lift for the front of the house. it is my understanding that it has been on someone's desk at the office of aging for almost a year. i ask jane to keep calling the office of aging but she can never get to talk to this person, she is always out and never returns calls.
November 2012things are just not what we want them to be as we head into the holidays. in early november jane was in the intermediate intensive care unit at lancaster general. she has two breaks in her right leg and two sores and an infection in her left leg. to compound things she has been having problems with her blood pressure being too low. i've counted 6 different doctors at one point and we have fired the internist. the palative care group and dr. mcgill have been must helpful.
November 18thafter spending almost exactly a month in the iicu she has been moved to selectspecialtyhospital in york. select specialty is an ltac or long term acute care hospital located on the 5th floor of yorkhospital. we expect her to be there 3 to 7 weeks.
December 2012jane spent 6 weeks at select specialty and is now at manor care lancaster. she is doing 2 rehab sessions a day, even on christmas day. jane had a bout with the flu but is feeling better, she loves that the dogs can come and see her frequently.
January 2013jane has been doing therapy 2 hours a day 6 and 7 days a week. even on christmas and new years. she got pnuemonia and spent 6 more days in lancaster general (3 in the iicu). the orthopedic doctor still does not want her to put any wieght on her right leg. with her bone density problems, it will be a very long healing process. the great part is that the sores on her left leg are about gone and she doesn't need wound care for them anymore, dr. flood has released her.
February 2013jane is done doing occupational therapy and just needs physical therapy 1 to 1 1/2 hours each day. she did get some sort of stomach virus in late february, she's gotten over it but she lost 10 pounds. we are pushing her a bit to get the wieght back. the orthopedic doctor still does not want her to put full wieght on her right leg, this may be ongoing. with her bone density problems, it will be a very long healing process.
March 2013in the second week of march we were cautiously thinking we could start making some preparations for jane to come home. while doing therapy (standing with a walker) jane's right leg broke. both the tibia and the fibula. because of her extreme bone density problems, she may be in a wheelchair for the duration. she is doing occupational therapy to keep in shape. considering the circumstances jane is in good spirits. the dogs take turns going in to see her on sundays. also the people at dialysis are going out of thier way to take care of jane and keep her comfortable. we also appreciate the concern and support from dr. carroll.
April 2013jane's leg is healing well but because of her low bone density she still cannot put any wieght on either of them. this is a problem that will not go away anytime soon. we have seen the rhumatologist and there is a shot she can get for the bone density problems. however her parathyroid, vitamin d, and calcium levels must all be just rite for her to get the shot. this is a big problem for a dialysis patient. we have to work with janes kidney doctor to get the levels correct. in the second week of may, we see the orthopedic doc, they will remove the cast, do an x ray and then determine the next step. considering the circumstances jane is in good spirits. the dogs take turns going in to see her on sundays. also the people at dialysis are going out of thier way to take care of jane and keep her comfortable. we also appreciate the concern and support from dr. carroll.
