Frustration Abounds

I'm currently doing In-Center Dialysis because the port that allowed me to do it at home failed and had to be taken out. It took 3 surgeries in 1 week to switch me from At-Home to In-Center dialysis and now I've been waiting for those to heal so I can get the At-Home port put back in.

The folks at In-Center are so kind, but I really hate it. I'm a fairly active person, I still work, I enjoy doing the community events my job allows, and I LOVE being on the radio daily. With At-Home dialysis I can do it around my schedule and I can actually dialyze while I'm doing most of my work at home. With In-Center, I'm stuck in a single chair for 4 hours 3 times a week and quite frankly...I just hate it.

I know...I'm complaining now and I need to stop...I a second...I promise. ;)

I've been going to dialysis Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11a-3p and Saturday Mornings from 6a-10a. NOW they want me on Saturdays from 11a-3p which absolutely destroys my schedule. That means almost one full day of the weekend is gone. That means I'm not available for the majority of Live Remotes for the radio stations over the Spring months. I just don't understand why they had to change me? I'm one of their active patients still trying to hold on to a career and some semblance of a normal life.

It's not forever, it's just till my At-Home port is put back in, but that's a whole other form of frustration. I'm healed enough from the first surgeries that I can proceed, but between trying to into the doc for a consult, then scheduling the surgery and having it, and finally waiting for THAT to heal around 3 weeks...I'm 2+ months away from At-Home. Soooo frustrating, I want it done NOW.

Ok...this post had way too much "I" and "Me" in it, and way too much complaining. That's gotta stop...but THANK YOU for reading. Seriously...thank you, and continue to help spread the word please! :)
