Hello Everyone,
I hope all is going well. I have been missing in action for a little bit. Glad to be back. I am trying to plan my first trip while be on dialysis and super nervous. I want to go see California (southern part) La,san diego..ect and I would like to know if anyone has gone to visit and if there are any clinics out there that are good. Thanks for you time.

I live in Rialto, outside Los Angeles. Davita West- Magnolia Center is pretty good. I will PM you with my phone number if you want it.

I live in Orange County near Disneyland and  Knott's Berry Farm.  I go to a Davita Center that I believe is very good.  PM me if you want the info.

Hey, how about a 1 night SoCal member get together when Lilu comes out??? We have Olive gardens here.

Davita Hollywood Dialysis is good and conveniently located.  If Ariel is still running the clinic is  a-l   .  Tell them Harvey  says hello from the Philippines :flower;

Lilu, don't be nervous. I am on dialysis and I have traveled, and traveled, and traveled more! It is one thing that makes life worth living.

You should be talking to your unit's social worker. Have an itinerary and he/she will make the arrangements for dialysis along the way. (A list of preferred centers (our recommendations :) ) can't hurt.)

How long before you go? The social worker usually needs a month for arrangements...

How about a date when you will be in the area? We can have a mini meet of the IHD.com family in So Ca! Let us know.

Hey Guys,
Thank you so much for all your feedback. I am not sure yet on the date of when to go. Im just worried about traveling while on dialysis. What happens if you get delayed in the airport??

One way to diminish that fear would be to get a direct flight.  The more layovers, the likely for delays.
