Dear kitkatz,
My first thought, when I saw your painted thoughts was: o dear, kitkatz needs an urgent break ... and then I realized (again) that dialysis creates no real breaks ...  but I do hope that with your family a way can be found to create for you some much needed weekend-breaks (fingers crossed !!!!) ?
I am with you and I am thinking of you and send you my kind regards from Kristina.  :cuddle;

Brilliant stuff.  "Hangry".

Hangry is the last hour. Every time. Doesn't matter how much I eat beforehand.

This is absolutely awesome and it brings a smile to boot! Great work, kitkatz! Really love your perspective and I hate to say it, although bothersome, cute little monsters! I would hug them... if they weren't dialysis monsters!

I misses the biggest monsters of all.   The twins  "When are you getting a kidney transplant" and "why not".

It amazes me how such small and quiet organs, like kidneys, actually do for us every minute of every day. Then I see these monsters and it really drives home the message: It's really hard to do without those little dudes.

My hubby put together T-Shirts to share at clinic that have this graphic and the words "End-Stage Kidney Failure!" underneath:
