Update: Some Good News!

I haven’t had a lot of good news in the past few weeks. Today, I had some. So, while I’m trying to limit my posting as not to bug people too much, I couldn’t wait to share this.

I had an appointment with my nephrologist today. After examining me, reviewing my labs over the last two weeks he made a statement. You see, I’ve been on a waiting list to do dialysis in Anacortes (5 miles from my house) verses Oak Harbor (15 miles from my house). He said, “I’m sorry Mike, but you will never be doing dialysis here (I met him in the Anacortes dialysis center). The reason is, you will not be going dialysis after 4 weeks and the wait list is about 8 weeks.” (my paraphrase) So, he is quite confident that I will end this part of the nightmare within weeks and get these catheters out of my chest. We are cutting back on dialysis this week from 4 to 3 1/2 hours. Hallelujah! / ! الحَمْد لله‎‎.‎‎  Mike
