Dialysis at Home?

Not for me. Not now anyway. I'm waiting to see how transplant works out. But one of the loud ladies came in on Tuesday saying she wants this to be her last week in the clinic.

"Have you been training?" a tech asked.

"No," she responded.

I think the tech was afraid to tell her that it takes up to eight weeks of training before they let you dialyze at home. Plus, you have to be pretty responsible since you have to do it six days a week. She probably skips her treatment once a week. Not sure she's such a great candidate.

I do not want to be there when someone tells her that.
