  • Hi Hostess,
    His doctors is not allowing him to be in a sun, because of medications he is on, so he is very careful about it.
  • Hello Renata,

    Welcome to Transplant Friends!  I agree with Hostess Rise on what a blessing you are to your boyfriend.  This is such a trying time, having support to rely on is so wonderful.  As for the insomnia, it is common and short lived however no sleeping adds to stress, which must be eliminated.  Perhaps his nephrologist can prescribe a temporary sleep aid.

  • Hello Renata

    Welcome to transplant friends! WOW! Your boyfriend is so very blessed to have you!

    Insomnia is linked to so many things and the feeling when one does not sleep well can feel like an illness.

    Is he getting enough sunshine?
