I am writing on behalf of my Mother Joan Elaine Reed, who currently is receiving Dialysis three times a week through Davita located in Pasadena, Maryland. If Dialysis is reduced to two days a week, you might as well give them a death sentence, My Mother carries fluid in her lungs, legs, feet, stomach, hands and face, she requires any where from 3 to 4 hours of Dialysis on Monday - Wednesday - and Friday. The sites now are full, they do not have enough artificial Kidneys aS it is to help serve the patients. I do not know what our Government thinks they are doing, but all of them really need to think twice about the End Stage Kidney patients out here who need dialysis three times a week. I do not want to see my Momma die, I want her around a while. It's bad enough now when she comes from Dialysis she gets cramps, throws up, gets very cold and all she wants to do is sleep. She is not candidate for a Kidney Transplant due to all of her other Health Problems. It's time that our Government puts us Americans first, our Governments just keeps throwing all of us to the wolves and sits back and watches and does nothing. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO " WE THE PROPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA "?
