Since a couple of people asked how I’m doing, I figured I’d do a quick post on me…
I’ve been doing the at home peritoneal dialysis since April, and it’s going well… I have to be in bed by 9pm every night in order to be able to get up early enough in the morning, but there are worse things in the world! I currently do 5 exchanges a day; 4 overnight of 2800 ccs, and then leave 1600 ccs in during the day (That part is just for my own records; I’m sure most everyone else won’t know what that means! LOL)
I’m feeling good, the difference between hemo and PD is amazing; my phosphorus is, as always, a raging issue, but I think it’s just a weird thing about me… I don’t know.
Work is fine; the office is moving over the holidays, so we’re designing and planning the new space. It should be a nice change, and I’m looking forward to having a WINDOW! Business is survivng, but my hours are still cut pretty significantly, and thanks to some day care drama last week, we are looking for a new day care effective immediately. We’re taking turns watching Max this week, and then Jamie and I are both off next week, so I need to find something soon
As for why we’re off next week; Max has his hernia operation on Friday! I’ve been putting it off and putting it off, and finally scheduled it. (I actually scheduled it in July; the day has finally arrived!) I’m a wreck. I’ve always been a pretty easy surgery patient myself… I’ve often said that the hard part is sitting in the waiting room. The patient gets all the good drugs! I’m seriously freaking out about Max being under general anesthesia, and I’m thankful it’s a short procedure. The good thing about my putting it off for so long is that it’s an outpatient procedure! Originally, if we’d done it a year ago, he would have had to have spent the night because of his preemie status, so now that he’s a thriving 17 month old, we’re in and out in the same day! So anyway, we’re hanging out at home next week, since he won’t be in any shape for day care. Is it horrible that I’m kind of looking forward to having a sweet, cuddly little boy for a few days?
So that’s the haps around here!
