Not A Smooth Day

 I wish I could say that dialysis was a success today. It was not a good day. I dialyzed, but not to the point where they were able to take 1.6 kilos of fluid out of my body. The machine kept beeping because of positional issues and having to be taken off for 45 minutes …

Successful Dialysis Day

Dialysis was very successful today.  The machine did not buzz too much.  My blood cleaned well.  We did not get to 3.15 kilos today because my blood pressure was 99/68 so the machine had to programmed to only clean my blood and stop taking fluid out at 2.9 kilos.  I usually get dizzy when my …
