Lord have mercy! Dialysis is rough to say the least. Tonight, you and your friend will certainly be in my prayers before Vespers.

Kidneys can be transplanted from living donors, perhaps your friend can consider this.

Lord have mercy.

There are support groups for this unfortunate situation.

I'm not sure if her doctors have already recommended these or not, but they may be worth looking in to.
