Lord have mercy! Dialysis is rough to say the least. Tonight, you and your friend will certainly be in my prayers before Vespers.
If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.

Authentic zeal is not directed towards anything but union in Christ, or against anything but our own fallenness.

Ouch.
Lord have mercy.
BTW, there are some herbal remedies that might offer some small help.

May the Lord have mercy on your friend.

Lord have mercy.  Lord have mercy.  Lord have mercy.

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

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

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.
