The 2 kidney doctors have said that putting in a line for dialysis is not possible . They will not even try it. If he does not get dialysis, the sepsis will kill him. If they try to put in a line, the risk is so high that any mistake will kill him. It is a catch-22.
One of the kidney doctors mentioned that an intervention radiologist might be able to get a line in. If they can't do it, no one can.
So, if they tihnk they can get it in, we will ask them to try it, even though it is extremely risky and likely to fail. If we don't try it, he will certainly die.
We face this potential decision Tuesday morning.
