It all happened so fast...exactly 1 month to the day from when the first sign appeared till the time the surgeon reported he successfully performed Quintuple Bypass Surgery on my father. I can't say I was surprised to learn that the years of abusing his body finally caught up with my him, but the news was devastating just the same. Diabetes and High Blood Pressure had manifested into Chronic Renal Failure which made performing an Angiogram a major risk to his already poorly functioning kidneys. But the heart takes precedence over the kidneys, after all you can live on dialysis, but not without a heart.
The results of the Angiogram revealed 5 major obstructions that were over 95% blocked. My dad was a walking time bomb. Surgery was scheduled for the next day. I was an emotional wreck and he was scared. I just wished that none of this was happening, then all of a sudden, I was thankful it was happening. He was having Quintuple Bypass Surgery, a preventative measure. It took off the table "your father had a massive heart attack" phone call that was bound to happen if left unchecked.
After surgery his kidney function started to decline rapidly. While it is common after having a CABG or Bypass Surgery for the kidneys to lose some function, but in patients with Chronic Renal Failure it is even worse. My father had no urine output for 12 hours before I started using Young Living Essential Oils on him.
I used the formula found in the Essential Oils Desk Reference to increase urine output and strengthen the kidneys and also the essential oil formula for Edema. In two days the pitting edema was gone and the kidneys "made a huge turn around". That is an exact quote from his Renal doctor (she was impressed).
I am continuing the oils to strengthen his kidneys, and using Melrose and Lavender Essential Oils on his incision sites which are healing beautifully. I can't wait till his follow-up visit on Wednesday. I am sure the doctor will be impressed with my fathers progress.
