Today is my mum's 6 year post kidney transplant, she is doing great and feels well in her self. Her creatinine is 130 and her function is stable. When I was 15 years old and went on the kidney transplant list my mum was tested to donate to me and that's when she found out she needed a kidney transplant eventually as well. If it wasn't for the person who sadly died being on the organ donor register and their family agreeing with them my mum would be on dialysis or no longer here. I want to say thank you to my mum's donor and their family for giving my mum another chance at life. all people who are organ donors are heroes.

#Dialysis done, when I went to get #weighed I started to feel very #dizzy and wobbly and felt like I was going to #collapse so had to sit back down and have a #drink. When I did weigh myself I was a bit lower than what I suppose to of been so looks like I put on #weight and #dry.

I know I am always #positive about #dialysis etc but today has been one #horrible day. we tried with both #blunts and it just wouldn't go in and when I tried the #sharp it was #hurting way too much and I got #angry and just stopped altogether and not doing dialysis today. I was that #mad I said i'm going to #quit the whole dialysis (Yes I know I would #die) I know it's #selfish of me to say things like that when I have the best #support around me, especially my #partner who's been there with me since day one. I just #flipped out because it didn't go #smoothly. I told the #nurse and shes coming round tomorrow to get me on dialysis. does anyone else get like that because of dialysis? #dontquit #struggle #homedialysis #hemodialysis #needles

Time to #relax after doing #dialysis and taking #fudge out, today while I was #needling my #fistula I thought I didn't get it so I was taking the #needle out and then when it was slightly out, #Blood shot right up almost went in mine and partners #face lol. so #people who do home hemodialysis make sure you try the #syringe before you take the needle out even if you don't think you haven't got the fistula.
