Dialysis and Apologies

SorryI haven’t been on-line much lately and for that I apologize.  I like to post every couple days — usually on my “days off”; Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday — but I’ve just been darned busy with so many other things.  It’s not that I don’t think about the blog and ideas.  I have over 50 drafts where I place ideas to be fleshed out later.  That’s a lot of ideas!  My pet idea is to write about “the Chair”.  I hope to get to it soon.

So, please forgive me for not being more conscientious about writing in the blog.  I will get back in the groove soon.  In the meantime, there are over 160 blog posts that I’ve written about a myriad of topics associated with dialysis (and some not so much).  So, there should be something that will answer your questions.  However, if you don’t see something, leave a comment.

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 www.DevonTexas.com 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. https://legacytales.wordpress.com/ Enjoy.
