Today was officially our first day under Davita rule. We were greeted with balloons and banners in the lobby, along with cookies and fruit punch. Each patient received a Davita tote bag, pillow, and blanket. I wonder how long the honeymoon will last?

I have a Davitah tote and pillow now.  I say we put these things together and leave them on Epoman's tombstone.
