a new wrinkle, fistula style


yesterday found my forearm a little swollen upstream from needle hole number two and so since I still have my chest lines in my chest, my nurse decided to use the hole number one for arterial flow and the venus flow from my chest line, kind of a hemodialysis half and half.  in a short time we will hit the magic number of 15 needles of fistula use and then switch to a larger needle, according to one humorist-nurse, the ones that are an inch wide, ha ha ha.
