rant warning 2nd shoe drops

SECOND SHOE DROP – got the preliminary heads up that with the assholes in nephrology having destroyed my perfectly excellent fistula the day after my surgery on July 31st and running with a chest line; my clearances never great were just at the bottom of acceptable with fistula, below that with chest line = more dialysis time going to be recommended.

I am already doing 4.5 hours Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

If they say I must give up my Saturday as well, they will be told in a loud clear voice to go fukk themselves. I have done everything they have ordered, their process is fukked post surgery, they should have run it like a two day weekend. There was no burning need to do dialysis within 24 hours of surgery.  Surgeon asked they hold off on hephrin for two sessions post surgery, he did not want me to bleed out.  They regulary wait 62 hours between friday afternoon and Monday afternoon dialysis runs and I dont explode in a toxic mess.  I asked them to take a look athier protocaol.  god knows if they will.

I will grudgingly give up to an added Tuesday or Thursday slot. Trouble is the scheduled is pretty full up for the regional nephrology. If it came to it I would drive to Toronto to save my Saturdays.  I moved to Mon, Wed Fri, so I might be able to take some continuing education courses usually scheduled on Saturdays.

Rant now over, stay healthy, I didn’t, and it sucks royally.
