It's absolutely brilliant.
In the three weeks prior to starting at home we'd been spending nearly 20 hours a week at hospital so we never felt like we got a break over Christmas.
But this first week at home has been a revelation. It has been very relaxing and really felt like we've had a rest.
We are dialysing five times a week at home instead of three times at hospital. This means I will get better results with more toxins getting filtered out of my blood and I'll feel a whole lot better.
Today I went back to work and definitely felt like I had more energy - had such a good day. Plus, because we can dialyse anytime we like, I can start working more full days which will positively impact my life in terms of job satisfaction and bank balance!
My incredible wife Joy is just the best nurse I could possibly imagine. She's better than a real nurse because she takes her time to really care for me. What am amazing gift she is. Joy sets up the machine, inserts my needles and keeps a check on me every 30 minutes. Then she gently removes my needles and tidies up everything. She is a great blessing to my life. I love her completely.
Home Dialysis is brilliant it's the best thing to happen since I became ill.
Feels like we've got back control of our lives.
Thank You God.
Keep praying :-
1. For Home Dialysis to continue to go well
2. That I continue to avoid infection
3. For a perfect donor kidney in the future
Thanks for reading and for supporting us on our journey.
