Friday evening dialysis in the construction

A little confusing, off balance, little things fumbly. odd to arrive for dialysis at just before 5 pm. The nurses are working scrambly new shifts. A few stumbles with housekeeping.  Smooth run, no nap.  Left around 920 PM.  Drive home in the dark, the reverse of my normal dialysis day.

Different TV for dialysis: I watched Bill Nighy and Tim Gunn speak with Charlie Rose.  Long loved Nighy’s performances. Gunn an intriguing man.  He spoke about the differences between teaching and mentoring.

Easter weekend next week will stretch construction time, we may face a third week.  On Good Friday, I will again be taking dialysis from 5-9 PM to help out another patient who has a big family dinner that night  In the past when I was treated on afternoons, I found it exceedingly strange to look at the blood running through the tubing heading to and returning from the machine at 3 o’clock, the time Christ died on the cross..
