Good luck htc. I was in the same boat. I ended up being confined to bed for 4-5 months and was glad to do it. My nails finally grew looooooooong because all I did was fluff a VERY soft pillow from time-to-time and all the good vitamins I was taking!!! lol I had a fairly small baby 5 lbs. 3 oz. but he has more than made up for it now at 17!!!!
It's a huge fear of the unknown. Our kidney problems may be different, I don't know. Best of luck to you with this visit.
