    I'm Having Emergency Surgery On Monday

    My catheter in my chest might be failing. Dialysis on Friday didnít go so well and Iíve been ordered to report for a new surgical proceedure to place another catheter. My artery theyíre using for dialysis might be collapsing.

    This is just great. On top of it, my grandmother is 91 and suffering from multiple strokes and lays dying in a hospital about a 90 minute drive away. I have been going to visit her nightly - often after dialysis at my home treatment center.

    I donít even know if the changes in nurses at my dialysis center has helped bring this about. The LVN who worked with me for nearly 6 months never had a problem with my dialyzing. Now the RN whoís rotated to serving my area in the clinic is having problems. I just donít trust her competance.

    Not only that, but on Monday, I think I will have to report for surgery entirely alone. My family is with my grandma, as they should be. This is fun.

    Tycho this is just a bump in the road. You will bounce back in no time.

    Think positively. May not seem like much, but it can't hurt, either. We're pulling for you. Ask them to choose "Mouse Droid" scent for your anesthesia.
