Dialysis, hot stuff


not much sleep last night

another strange day at dialysis today

soon after settling in, my body was aching and muscles in shoulders and neck super tight and tense

nurse went to get me something I have never heard of, a cervical hot pack, which is kept in hot water, wrapped in a towel and placed on tight neck and below. and I do mean HOT, MELTED THE TENSION and I dropped into a deep deep sleep after basically two sleepless nights, bless you Nurse Sue.

ablut two hours I surfaced from my deep deep oblivion sleep, and to my alarm, the tenseness came flooding back into my nexk and shoulder, so I asked for hot pack number two which helped yet again.

tension tried to slip back in during the afternoon, but I held it off fairly well
