DIALYSIS

01/16/20

Dialysis days are not always fun. I enjoy going to dialysis, but when it comes to positional issues with my neck and head, it can be a rough and tough time to sit for three hours and fifteen minutes. That is the way I felt this week so far as dialysis is concerned even though …

Dialysis Update

Life in the dialysis department has been going very well lately.  I have been able to find a comfortable sitting position that relieves the neck, back, and bottom from getting sore.  It is in recline mode as if I am laying in my bed at night.  Dialysis has been able to get done with less …
