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.

    I hope you enjoy your pancakes! I am going to try a recipe for waffles to freeze. I read all of your posts now and will comment. I am pretty new to all of this and am still on half a perm cath and half on a small needle in my fistula. It is life saving stuff, but scary too. I really feel 100% better now tho. As I like to say,” it is what it is”

    I just noticed it should be 1 tsp baking powder. Not Tblsp. Thanks

      Too late! LOL Didn’t make much difference though. They came out REALLY fluffy! LOL Confession: I read the recipe wrong. I put TWO cups of flour instead of ONE into the mix and used the specified butter and two eggs with sweetener but the Tablespoon of Baking Powder instead of the teaspoon. The result was not too bad. I detected the problem as soon as I begin to stir it with only one cup of milk. It was like a ball of bread mix instead of pancake mix. I re-read the recipe and TaDa! I added more milk to thin the mix and that was enough. It came out good. Very cakey. But good.
