Dialysis Day 56


It's gonna be harder to blog now. They are starting to use my fistula today! I have to keep my left arm still so I'm typing with one hand. I'm going to have to be less wordy. It will be 5 weeks before we can think about removing my catheter. Can't come soon enough. After seeing some fistulas online I'm hoping it takes a long time before mine looks that nasty. They can get pretty big and gross. You might not see me in sleeveless shirts for much longer.

29 Weeks

Each day we get a little bit closer to our goal of 32 weeks. Today I'm 29 weeks! We will be happy to deliver any time after 32 weeks, but thrilled to wait as long as possible. Babe is still small. We'll find out how small on Wednesday during the next ultrasound. Hoping for a gain of 200 grams since last time.

The Puker

"Monica" is sitting with a bowl under her chin. No throwing up yet...let's all hope she doesn't!
