Therapy, You Say?

Good evening, everyone. Hope you are doing well today.

I am trying to get back into making sure that I keep blogging on a regular basis. Today, I had to go see my therapist. Yes, I have to see him about every three to four weeks on a regular basis to keep me on the kidney transplant list. So far, he tells me that I am doing great in having a positive outlook on everything with all the crap that I have to deal with.

All in all, I am still doing my dialysis treatments on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. I work five days a week. I try to go to church weekly, give or take a week off here and there due to how I am feeling that morning. But, the one thing that gets me is that I am having a harder time right now doing outgoing things. I really have to get back into walking on a regular basis. We got out of it (Ashleigh and I) about a month ago and haven't been back since.

All I can say is to help a friend out by being their buddy in exercising. Everyone needs a buddy.

Ciao for now.

Today's Dialysis Treatment

I started cramping and to top things off, I ended up getting a headache. So, instead of attempting to work outside on the porch once I got home, I laid on the couch and fell asleep. I hate it when I get these cramps and don't feel like doing anything.

Since a lot of the dialysis patients come in at the same time, I have managed to get some of them to agree to come in an hour early so that we can talk about different things. We do this anyway, so why not do it on a weekend when we are more than likely to participate. This is one way that I can give back to the patients and nurses. We have some of the best assistants in the center, and yet not many people know how much they help the patients out.

We, the patients, welcome these assistants into our lives and they do…
