Sleep and Dialysis

I am doing fine.  Tired and doing my best to stay awake for now.  I have not been sleeping well this weekend.  The weather has been very hot – in the 80’s – making sleeping kind of uncomfortable.  I have not slept in my bed all weekend.  I tried Friday night to no success.  I have been sleeping in my corner chair by the AC to keep cool in this heat.  That is one thing I do not like about summer. The opposite goes for me about not liking winter cold and icy days.  As I sit here, writing this entry, I have to admit that sitting at dialysis 3 ½ hours in a recliner to relax, read, watch TV, and be on my phone playing games, is something I have learned to appreciate.

            Speaking of dialysis, I do have to admit that I am glad that my dialysis weekend has begun.  My dialysis weekend begins the moment I leave the clinic after treatment.  Yesterday’s treatment was a little frustrating because once again my catheter was not pulling very well and I needed Cath Flow once again.  I am not upset about the catheter being a problem right now. I had to keep my head to the left again so reading, working on some Bible study for church did not happen again.  I am not scared or anything.  I am tired from not sleeping well yet this weekend and my thought process is on my future fistula placement procedure coming up on July 12, 2019.  I am exciting in a way as well as a little nervous and anxious once again.
