Week of July 6 – 11, 2020

I am so looking forward to my dialysis weekend.  It has been one of those weeks where dialysis went smoothly on Tuesday and Thursday.  I am hoping it goes smoothly today as well.  Dialysis ran Tuesday and Thursday perfectly.  The lines were NOT reversed.  Because Saturday, July 4, 2020, dialysis was not working at all, I had to go to dialysis on Monday, July 6, 2020, for my three hours and fifteen-minute treatment, and Dr. A wanted me to come in on Tuesday for two hours and forty-five minute of therapy to keep me on track.  This week I had four treatments.  It was worth it, and today, I am going during my regular treatment time, and it is for the best.  I did have a lot of fluid in me this week because I missed a day of treatment last Saturday.

I have learned to relax and allow the catheter to do its job this week.  I hope it does the same today. I will update Saturday later in the day when I get home to rest a bit.
