Oh I see. We were only told to wear a mask if we had the flu or something like that, or it might of been a cough I cant remember.

I was informed that the reason for the mask is to help prevent the spread of any germs from your mouth.

what States have that? I know they don't have it in my Canadian city yet :(

It's available in just about every state with-in the USA now.  PA has it to, including my city of Philadelphia but mainly only through Davita.

Thanks for the pics, may I ask why you have a mask on?
That was near the beginning of my CAPD time at that time it was required at the beginning when you first "connect". Then you can take it off because of the great "snap-disconnect" feature from Fresenius (and as far as I know Baxter has this too).

When I first was doing PD back in 1990 you HAD to wear a mask for connecting AND disconnecting as there was no "fast connect" feature.

I am glad things have changed and improved medically in the last decade ;)


You still *have* to wear a mask when connecting.... yah the connection takes like 5 seconds... but you still are supposed to wear a mask and be in a sterile room. You dont have to wear a mask to disconnect tho.

You know, I've been thinking about a mini-fridge! heh.

What you can't see in the picture is that I have a big screen on the other side of me, so I can turn my head and watch movies. But most of the time I just read a book or get on the internet.

Hi there,
Finally got round to posting this. Well this is my little set up, Epoman I hope I've downsized it correctly. You'll notice the container with the drain bag in has wheels, so I can kick it to the bathroom! lol.

Here is my current setup at home using the Aksys PHD with the NxStage in the same room (was the NxStage looking to move in?). There will be some sad news soon about the PHD. I think the PHD gives the best dialysis, minute for minute, of any machine on the market at this moment.

Here I am using the NxStage on the road in August 2006. I drove from Seattle to Chicago with my dog and had a great time.  I love road trips. This shot is at the Elephant Head Lodge in the Shoeshone National forest about 5 miles East of Yellowstone on the road to Cody. (Note to lady RenalROomance users - that is about what I look like in the morning  ;)  )

I just found this picture of my dialysis setup. Its not the best pic. but its only one i have at the moment. After looking at post of the other pics. My machine looks HUGE.
I have a pretty good set-up in the room, TV, cable. DVD Player, telephone and beautiful sun light. What else could a girl need?  :D

 :clap;  Thanks Rimbo74 and Goofy.

I am on Fresenius APD and it is always great to see what else is out there. Never know when they might try to make you change.

I think we are lucky to be able to do PD as our dialysis.(I would rather skip it altogether, but if I really have to  :-\)
They are nifty little machines!

Wow! I'm on Fresenius, too, the machine is so heavy, and it's on its own stand that has the scale, so you GOTTA
use it.  I'm jealous of the portability of the Baxters! You guys have some neat setups there!  I've set my cycler on
one side of the bed, and my computer on the other. Since I rarely watch tv, read, mostly, I didn't worry about
having a tv to watch.  I just pile books on the bed, so  they are at hand!

I can't find my camera, but we bought this nifty rolling organizer at Ikea that I keep my on hand supplies in. 

It has drawers and shelves on the front, a side rack with hooks to hang masks, clamps, etc. on the right side, magazine rack pockets on the back for my log and manuals and open shelves on the left, where I keep my paper towels, hand sanitizer, tape, etc.  I roll it next to the cycler for more surface space to connect the bags. 

The way I have mine set up the Baxter guy keep saying that Baxter should start selling them.

MyssAnne, Are you on the Fresenius APD Sleep safe? ( i have posted a pic on the previous page) Mine came with a carry case and transports very easily. Can you post a pic of your setup?

Wattle, next time my fiancee comes to my house OR I bring the cycler to his, I'll have him take a picture of it. No, it's not a SleepSafe, I'll have to look tomorrow night when I go back to see what it is! I do have a case, just for the cycler, but not for the stand. It is just a hassle to pick up and carry
out the door to the car!
