I can't help you with the GM, but I do welcome you to IHD.  I hope there is someone else who can give you some direct support.  And I'm sorry you have to be here.

Hello Arctraveler,

Unfortunately, not everyone reads introductions.  Go pose your question on Dialysis General Discussion.  They may have more information for you there.

Welcome -  Rerun, Amdin.   :welcomesign;
