Success Stories


James

"There is very good team work here at Kindred."

James is a guitar player and teacher who began to experience symptoms his doctor thought were allergies and prescribed medication for him to take at home. A few days later his condition deteriorated and when he was unable to move and began experiencing episodes of delirium, his wife called 911 and he was rushed to the hospital. James had to be placed on a ventilator and started on dialysis as his condition was extremely critical – he was suffering from emphysema, pneumonia, acute respiratory and kidney failure, sepsis and cardiac hypertension.

Ruben is the chief engineer for a major bank who shared that until Christmas day of last year he “never got sick and always planted a vegetable garden.” His condition worsened, and in February he went to the ER where he was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat – a condition known as a-fib. His condition went downhill rapidly and he had to be resuscitated twice and placed on a ventilator to support his failing lungs. Ruben also developed acute kidney failure and required dialysis during his stay in the ICU that lasted for a month.
