For once I had my camera with me when I noted the canine passenger in the van next to my car at the shopping mall. He studied me carefully as I passed him to get into my car but he decided not to bark since I am harmless. The temperature early this morning when I left for dialysis was around -15 C. By the early afternoon it was up to -5C.
For some reason my arterial needle in my fistula acted up so after much fussing and microadjusting my nurse gave up and resorted to a chest line. The venal site further up my arm worked fine. In fact, today was the first time for using a large needle for it. One more step along the transition.
