Congratulations, Kadesma! It's great not to have to go to dialysis 4 days a week and get stuck and all the other not so fun parts of hemodialysis, huh? Plus, you'll probably get to drink more fluids, too.

You should be so proud of yourself, getting your training done in just a week! That's very impressive because it's a lot to learn but believe me, they wouldn't have "graduated" you if you weren't ready. I know you'll do great with the peritoneal. Are you doing CAPD or CCPD?

Anyway, I'm so happy you'll have so much more time at home with your wonderful grandbabies and I know they are thrilled.

Terry,
I have an access in my neck so I don't get stuck, but it's a temp but has lasted well.I've been going to hemodialysis 3 times a week for 3 hours each time..I've become very fond of the nurses and aides and bring them cookies and cakes at least once a week..Today they all gathered around to give me hugs and kid me about who was going to feed them now .I have decided agains't having an access in my arm as once in it cannot be removed..The one I have was just jammed in there without asking me I woke up to it..Now I have one in the lower abdoman for the pd..After about a month they will let me go on the cycler if I want..Right now I do 4 exchanges a day with my choice of fluid...The cycler has a waiting list up to 3 months so we will see...Hopefully I can get it sooner, but it's only fair to wait my turn...Tonight we are setting up the solutions,clamps,gauze pads,soaps,cleaning solutions,pole,bags,heating pad..it's like bringing home a new baby Lot to learn, but,,hey you do what you have to..I have a bit of shakey knees, but that will pass..I can do this!
Thanks for the support and reminding me of my babies, at last I'll be able to have them here more once again..It seems like forever since they came to stay and play.

It's okay to be a little afraid sweetie, just don't let fear take over. I'm sure that in a week you will be laughing and asking yourself what you were so worried about.
