Today was a good day at dialysis. I am glad that I got there and out at a reasonable time, even though I didn’t get out until almost 1 PM. The dialysis techs were having some trouble with the machine, and it took time to hook me up to the device. I am grateful that today was Thursday, and DKF will be with me this afternoon and evening for a while. The weather could be more desirable. It has been rainy or cloudy the past few days. I thrive on sunshine, similar to a flower when rain and cloudy days are more than one day. The only complaint I have about my day is getting up in a standing position from a sitting position was brutal all day at home. I did find a way to get up without help, but it wasn’t easy. The idea of pushing up with my left arm on the couch arm and my right arm/hand on the handle of my walker didn’t seem like a good idea, but it worked for me. DKF cannot help me, so I had to find a solution to my dilemma if it is a dilemma. It worked even though the idea didn’t seem safe or realistic. DKF teases me about being weird, and we laugh about it, but I believe she wouldn’t do it to be mean. She’s a very good person who loves what she does for the community as a nurse and caregiver. I love her very much. When she says that I am weird, I roll my eyes at her and continue doing what I am doing.
