I'm Home

After a possible issue yesterday with a leak in my filter tanks I'm actually now doing Dialysis back at home. The tanks were replaced yesterday  and after the guy left I went to rinse the system and found a major leak. My heart just dropped, if this wasn't going to be able to be fixed I wasn't going to be able to go on today at home. I called the after hours nurse line, and they said that they wont be able to get anybody out tonight (last night).

If it couldn't be fixed I was going to have to go back to the hospital today. I really didn't want to do that. My father was due to be home in about an hour so I let them know that, and they said they would callback later. After eating dinner my father took a look at the tanks and it turned out it was just a loose line. He was able to tighten it and fixed the issue. That was a relief.

Today my training nurse came out, and just made sure I still remembered how to set the machine up correctly after 6 weeks of not doing it. She stood back and watched as I was able to get both dull needles in without a hitch, they just slid right in, I hardly felt a thing. I am currently hooked up and going, there is 6 hours and 30 minutes remaining. This is day 1 of being back home, here is hoping I don't have too many more days until I get another call to go to Halifax.
