Bethany went to Urgent Care which she went for a sore throat and was given medicine to return back to the hotel still feeling sicker. She began to experience sickness that was diagnose with Bronchitis & upper respiratory infection urgent care in Baton Rouge two days with nothing but swelling, headaches along with vomiting. Bethany drove herself to the Ochsner Hospital where she was admitted into the hospital with her kidneys operating at 5% . The team of doctors had no idea what was going on with Bethany on 09/ 11/16. Beth also experience high blood pressure in fact it was so high it dropped the kidney percentage even more which results end in a blood transfusion. Bethany stayed in the hospital for week. She was finally given the diagnose of High Blood Pressure and IGA Nephropathy. At this time she was told in order to live for the next six months the best treatment would be a kidney transplant. We was discharge and treatment started with medication and hoping to go to New Orleans as soon possible to the kidney transplant center to start her journey to recovery. Back to the hotel for the journey the family went with emotions all over the place because we lost everything including cars, clothes and etc.
09/18/16 Beth was up once again crying in the bathroom trying to use the bathroom when she began to experience the shakes almost like a seizure. We jumped up and rush her back to the hospital. We found out that her kidneys was shutting down and she needed emergency surgery to start a peritoneal dialysis in order to live. During the surgery she experience complications that the results involved her having to be put in a small ICU that lead to several blood transfusion. Finally, the start of hospital living and hotel living started for Bethany's Family for over month and two weeks. Nightly she was given peritoneal dialysis treatment for 12 hours and then it went into 8 hours with long nights, early morning and full of emotional stressful days with anxiety along with tears. God has been good to us during this journey thus far.
