Hello all! I hope everyone is doing well. As some of you know, I'm a peritoneal dialysis patient and started dialysis 4.5 months ago. My Dialysis team has been encouraging me to get out and do things, which I've been managing to do by taking walks and running errands for my parents. I haven't spent the night anywhere yet though because I was getting used to my cycler at night. Well, I finally decided that I was going to take the leap and I will be going to the coast for a weekend in a few weeks! I'm very excited and relieved with how understanding the hotel staff were over the phone about my needs for this trip to be successful. It also seems fitting that the day I leave will mark 5 months since I began dialysis!
I just thought I'd share my exciting little milestone!
