Quickie update

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. So I was readmitted to the hospital from Monday through Wednesday. Had my "day" surgery and was supposed to dialyze. Turns out was too late by Monday and they can only dialyze as an inpatient. So I had to stay til Tuesday. Tuesday came and I'm informed 2 treatments are the minimum before they will release. Grrrrr... I am so over being in the hospital. I have a LIFE ya'll. :-) Kinda need to get back to it.

Anyway, I was a compliant patient and I stayed. Aaminah was fine, with my friend Deanna again and everything was ok. My treatments went well and I'm not the "proud" owner of an ash split catheter. It's placed kinda under my collar bone. I cannot shower with it (yay :-( ) but I have to put up with the inconvenience for now. If I have to stay on dialysis I'll end up getting another permanent access but that's for another day.

So I'm home, starting treatments tomorrow. I'll be a Tues, Thurs, Sat girl. It takes about 5 hours from hook up to disconnect and "chill" time. :-) Insha'allah it will all work out. Of course I cannot travel to Cap'n for the foreseable future which is a bit hard to bear but we are trying to be patient and upbeat. Alhamdulillah.

OK so I need to get to bed. It's really late and I have to be up on time to get ready for treatment, take Aaminah to friend's, and well get there. I've never been to this location so I have to scope it out tomorrow also.

Alright gonna go set my alarm, talk to ya'll later. Ma salaama!
