Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

This time of year, please remember all the dialysis patients who will enjoy another holiday because of the availability of the life-giving treatment, dialysis.  And please remember all the good done by the National Kidney Foundation that supports many of those patients.   If you can, send a gift to the NKF.  A gift today provides support for the 26 million Americans living with kidney disease so they don’t have to fight it alone.


Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

And if you’re reading this, the world didn’t end today as predicted.  So, all the more reason to enjoy these holidays!


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 can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients 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. 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. Enjoy.

  1. Merry Christmas to you, Devon. A gift to NKF, AKF, any of the great organizations help those of us on dialysis. Every gift goes to help us in many ways and without them, most of us would be in over our heads. Their sole purpose is to help and help is what they give.
