Getting away: not always easy!

And great post about Dialysis and Travel. I’m glad to re-post.

Big D and Me

Over the last six months, we have managed to get out of town occasionally, for one or two days around dialysis.

Mini Holiday!By around dialysis, I mean that leave for our mini holiday accommodation (usually a hotel about an hour away) straight after dialysis on Wednesday night. We spend the night and have breakfast and a leisurely Thursday morning there, then, around lunchtime, we return for my afternoon dialysis. At the end of dialysis, we go back to the hotel (all in all about a 4 hr round trip). We then spend Thursday night and all of Friday at the hotel (no dialysis Friday) and check out Saturday morning in time for midday dialysis.

Basically, this gives us three nights away, with one (shortish trip) to dialysis in the middle.

Works for us!

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.
