Hope that mean she is okay, and she is so right about infection. We had a guy, full of life, always with something quick to say. He left on a Friday, his usual self, over the weekend got some kind of infection in the arm with his fistula, and by Monday was gone. It can happen so fast, and that is one of the hardest parts of this whole thing.

I am still around and hitting things with my stick.  I feel like someone beat me with my own stick.  I hurt all over and have a bout of sciatica for the last year or so.  Kaiser managed to give me huge bruises on my right arm from trying to get blood work and IVs.  I do not remember any of it.  I was pretty much out of it most of this hospital stay from Tuesday night through till Thursday morning when they sent me home finally.  I think the ER lost me when they moved me from one room to another.  What a way to go people!  Be assured I am still alive and kicking.
 I am currently working on revising a story I have written.  I have plans to write a book about dialysis from a patient's viewpoint.

We are so Glad to hear from you cause we were worried.

Distance makes the worry so much harder when no one is close enough to sit and hold your hand.

Keep taking Care,

Hope everything goes well. Your story about being lost by the ER makes me remember a story Richard Pryor used to tell. He was in room 528, and he heard them discussing how the patient in 527 had passed away. He said, now, God knows mathematics and after 527 comes.....

I have plans to write a book about dialysis from a patient's viewpoint.

If anyone can do that, it's you.  You have plenty stories to fill a book, I'm sure
