Another day another Dialysis treatment

Well I'm back at the hospital. Currently hooked up with both a needle in my arm and a tube to one line in my chest. They used what is called a Teflon needle today. Anybody who has ever had an I.v would be familiar with a needle like this.

The way it works is once the needle is inserted the needle part slides put leaving a plastic sheath in the artery. This is flexible to I have more range of motion and there is no chance of moving my arm the wrong way and having the very sharp metal needle puncture the rear of the artery.
