CHF w/Kidney Failure?

I'm wondering if anyone on here has had experience with someone with end stage CHF and then later diagnosed Kidney Failure?  My father who has CHF, COPD, & Diabetes is now being evaluated for issues with his kidneys.  He is undergoing testing, but preliminary labs, & symptoms seem to point toward advanced kidney failure.  I'm very concerned about this, and trying to determine my next steps, as he lives 7 hours from me.

CHF, COPD, & Diabetes all are risk factors for kidney disease.  I think you should get all the information you can from his doctor(s) so you can make a care plan.
