Kidney transplant

So we all know that I was diagnosed with a rare auto immune shutting down my kidneys, respitory failure, coma, hospital for 30 days, and learning to walk again, use my body and more every day struggles to get my life back. It has been a long scary road already and I'm only in the beginning. It's not easy being 34 living this way. So. I do hemo dialysis, where they filter my blood. I sit in a chair 3:45 hours 3 times a week. When I am done I cannot function, I'm weak, tired, washed out, brain is drunk, I hate it. I have panic attacks on machine. The surgery I am having Thursday will let me have pd dialysis, where I will be at home, in my bed sleeping, and it's sugar water in my stomach, instead of blood pumping out. On hemo I can only drink 32 ounces in 24 hours, on pd, I can have more. Only problem is Medicare is making me pay 20% I do not have on top of josh missing 2 days of work to help me through the first two days of healing. I did yard sales, I have friends helping raise money....I'm only short a little more. I don't want to ask for money. I'm very desperate to get this done so that I can be in comfort until transplant. I thank everyone for EVERyThInG that they have helped me with!!!! I couldn't have gotten through all this without the help and support . My family is forever grateful, and this will all be paid back in one way or another. Thank u
