Dialysis Day 49

Much Better

My breathing was good last night. I'm not sure if it's because they took off the right amount of fluid or because I took some benadryl before I went to bed. Either way, I slept well and that's a good thing!

My blood pressure was really good this morning. It hasn't been good in a long time. But my heart rate is still really high. They put me on a heart monitor this morning. My nephrologist said he doesn't want me on a beta blocker because I'm pregnant. I have a feeling they'll call him today to tell him about my heart rate again.


I don't know if anyone was watching Oprah yesterday, but they did a show on diabetes. There was a lady who was a nurse who had one leg and the other foot amputated. When Dr. Oz was talking to her in her hospital room she was on dialysis. She had a catheter in her arm like I do. I wanted to call everyone I know to turn Oprah on so they could see the machine and see someone on dialysis. I have heard that you can search the Internet for video of people on dialysis.
