'I am having a hard time with this which really suprises me because he has had this for 10 years and i have been prepared for his death, I thought. I have so many unanswered questions about different blood tests bieng done and the results of those tests. I have two sisters i am the baby. My oldest sister doesn't care alot for my father she is his step daughter and they have never really had a good relationship, she was a very rebelious teenager and he was a police officer and tried everything to get her away from the people she should avoid and she has always resented him for that, I am sure there are other things but I don't know for sure. My other sister is a meth junkie who doesn't really care what is goingon unless she can get some money or drugs from the outcome, she has a different mother than I do, so really I am the only one with the father and the mother. My dad and mom divorced 17years ago, he cheated, so she doesn't have a real high regard for him, sure she doesn't want him to die but she doesn't really like him either. So (and I am not complaining) I just feel a little alone during this time and I am having a hard time not bieng able to talk to anyone about it, no one wants to hear me or deal with it. So tomorrow I am going back to the hospital after I take my daughter to school, hopefully the Dr. won't get there until after I am there. Then I can pin him down and get some of these questions answered. If any of you has any idea bout urea nitrogen levels and congestive heart failure I would apreciate the help. His urea nitrogen level is 90, normal range is 5-25. I wonder if this is going to give him a higher risk of death. His creatinine level is 2.7 which I know isn't good either. What level do they normally start dialysis? He is 4+ edemiatic which they said is about as high as the number goes and then...and thats when they stopped themselves. So what then? Death? I know he is dying, I have prepared myself (who am I kidding, is anyone ever prepared). So if any of you have any information for me be very appreciative of your help. Thank You and God Bless You.
