Emergency Dialysis

My mom was admitted and confined for 3 days at the hospital. They put her in the operating room and inserted a catheter on her neck to prepare for dialysis. I am super clueless and confused after we showed her laboratory test at that time. I was just informed that her creatinine level is too high and she need to be confined and see a Nephrologist. We really don't know what to do that time. I was scared and my mom was confused, the feeling is horrible.

The Nephrologist told us that she needed to hemodialysis. A stormy night and we went to hospital and waited for the doctor and recommendation to other doctors so they can start to treat my mom. Three days of worries, confusion, stressful in the hospital are horrible moments that you don't want to go back.
