When all else fails run in circles, shout loudly

There I was skipping to my nr.gazillion D session, and happen to notice there were only 13 hours and 5 minutes left of my Sak life.
Huh? Never seen that before. Usually 80 hours or so. Fair enough I changed from 2 on 1 off for 2 1/2 hours to every day 2 hours because I can't use Tinzaparin, so need to flush every 30 mins. But still. Aha, I did put a new batch on straight after a morning session, and was too 'not up to it' one day.

I remembered reading something on the site about 12 hours, and the batch automatically emptying.
So I quickly put cycler in prime while calling Nxstage to check.
A very friendly Chris told me that as long as I have started dialysing before the Pureflow says 12.00 I should be fine.

By that time the Pureflow says 12.50. I have never before set the needle table up so quickly.
Never needled so quickly (no time for Emla cream) Never been so stressed to just get me on in time without anything going wrong.

But I got on with 15 mins spare, took a Diazepam and run smoothly.

Just thought I'd let y'all know again about the 12 hour crash.
