If the Blob only had Dialysis

Obviously the Blob was only the Blob because he had a lot of extra fluid weight from bum kidneys. All he wanted was a good ole treatment of dialysis to shed some of that fluid.

After my issues last week, and because it I wasn't getting proper treatments I'm walking around with about an extra 10 - 12kg of fluid weight. Thats really not the great of thing but my doctors said that as long as it's not permanent it's ok because I'm young and have a strong ticker. Its really uncomfortable though, I don't really feel bad, just nothing fits right, my calfs feel tight in my jeans, feet feel odd. It's like I'm having a baby and have baby weight, but instead of taking 9 months to loose it, it will be a week or so. It will come off with my treatments at home, its going to take a few however.

This is probably the first time I'm actually wanted to do Dialysis since I started 1 and a half years ago. Don't get me wrong, I still don't look forward to doing it, but I do look forward to shedding 4kg of fluid in 7 hours. Each day I'm on I will get closer and closer to my dry weight and start feeling right again. It will probably take 5 or 6 days to get there. Drop 4kg overnight during my treatment, gain 2 of that back during the day then repeat repeat. It's a real back and forth.
