Dialysis time change

they came around and asked us all which “shift” we would want if we could have our choice when to have dialysis.

My choice was 1. Mon Wed Fri  afternoons or 2. Tues, Thurs, Sat afternoon. I am currently doing Tues. Thurs. Sat. mornings

That was on Saturday, any changes would be on the basis of “seniority”.

Today I got the word, and a lot of people decided to stand pat.   I got my second choice.  I start afternoons this Thursday.

BTW, the spot that came open, as I suspected, was because a dialysis patient died.  She had been on dialysis about 6 years and was about 84 years of age.  She was widely known in the community and an article about her life and passing appeared in the local newspaper.  Not the best way I can think of to get my choice.  This winter I will be much happier not to get out on the road by 6:25 AM, sometimes beating the snow plow or worse getting stuck on the highway behind one going just 40 KPH.  84 is a good long life. Rest in peace.
