Not a good day.. (updated).

Update 8/9/12:  My eyes are better today, but I spent all morning at the Texas Workforce Commission, meeting with them so I can preserve my unemployment payments that are currently paying the bills. Now I’m just tired and need a break.  However, my eyes are much better today and I should be able to finish part two soon.  Keep watching this space.  

And thanks so much for your notes of concern.  Like everything else, I just take life as it comes.  It’s always “entertaining”. 

I’m sorry, but I can barely see today.  I was hoping to write the second part of the series about CKD and Your Job but I will have to wait until tomorrow.  Don’t worry though, I’ll be okay. I just have bouts with vision problems and then they pass.  The doc calls it retinal neuropathy. I call it a pain in the butt! LOL

See ya tomorrow.  In the meantime, check out my other postings.  I love the one called “The High Dive“. When I get down, it reminds me of what I can do when I just decide to do it.

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I could be hooked up to a machine that would clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I went to a dialysis center and had too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passed through a process where it was cleaned and the fluid was removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. In November 2017, I received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor. My life went into overdrive. With a "new" functioning kidney, I no longer had to go to a dialysis center and my days were not open to be lived rather than recovering from dialysis which meant dialyzing for three days and resting for 4 days a week. I work full-time and often 50 hours per week. It is something I never imagined. I highly recommend it! HeeHee I want to advance knowledge about dialysis and transplant so that others can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them in All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. I also blog in LegacyTales in WordPress if you are interested in the ramblings of a Old Man. Give a peek and let me know what you think. Enjoy.
