Had a traveller from Toronto who occupied the seat next to mine when i asked him how our dialysis unit compared he says he does his dialysis at home so a said is that what they call perotoneal dialysis?  no he said i have Fresnius machine just like the one you are hooked up to,he went on to say government healthcare covers the cost, wow maybe i should move from Quebec to Ontario.
