Mike2Kal - Personal Blog Of Living With Kidney Disease,Dialysis And HIV

Well another week is in the book with two more weeks until i will be doing dialysis at home.Yesterday i was a little nervous as it was with seeing my HIV doctor Dr. Ghesquire after getting off dialysis early to go to his office.Just as i was getting ready to start the process of unhooking myself Sue came in with the other home dialysis nurse to watch me because on Monday Sue starts with another new gentleman getting him trained.We will be in the same room but Shannon will be watching over me a bit to help me out if needed.Even though i swear Sue has eyes in the back of her head because this lady misses NOTHING so i am sure she would not miss one screw up by me even though she is teaching another dialysis student.So i was nervous with the two of them watching me…

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.
