I keep saying that it's hard to see the light at the end of this very long and dark tunnel. But Thursday was a bit of a break-through. Not only are TWO people getting tested early next week, but other good things are happening.
First, they sent my paperwork to DaVita in Delhi. I might get to start dialyzing closer to home. It would cut back on my travel time tremendously! Plus, they get people on at 5:00 am. That's two hours earlier than here at the hospital.
Next, we're discussing HOME dialysis. There are two different kinds, but both can be done while I'm sleeping! AHH! That means I could work full days every day! Everyone keeps saying I'm a perfect candidate for home dialysis. I guess you need to be half-way intelligent and highly motivated. I'm definitely motivated.
I've sort of been floating on air the past few days. I can see a light at the end of this tunnel. It's just a glimmer of hope, but without hope I might not be able to make it.
A nurse told me today that my kidney doctor said he felt like a grandpa when Anna was born. I can't believe I haven't sent him a thank-you yet. Of all of my doctors, he's been the one that's always been on my side. Guess I know what I'm doing during dialysis today.
