Dialysis, a new note


Yesterday at D I learned my phosphorus has crept up a tick.  Not good. And my clearances have slipped due to the low pump speeds needed to get the fistula started.  So it is possible the doctor may recommend longer runs than my current four hours. Which although a drag would not likely be a permanent deal.  At the moment the nurses are using one chest line and one fistula access.  I am even getting used to the discomfort of the fistula needle.  As always the golden goal is the idea that I will be able to go swimming next summer. I live on Georgian Bay and have always gone swimming in it and I missed it a lot this past year.  You can’t get chest lines wet.
