Memorial Day and Other Thoughts
Well, it took a week and a half, but my fussing paid off. I'm now back in the section I want to be in, and I have a TV that works. This seems petty as I write this, but it really makes a difference. Going to dialysis is hard enough without dreading other parts of it. If you're going to dialysis and you're not happy with your tech/nurse or your environment, say something. Your insurance company or the government or you (or a combination of these) are paying lots of money to the company that is caring for you. You shouldn't have to dread it any more than what is normal.
I thought I'd share a comic today . . .
Hope everyone is having a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend. I was visiting family, but a hurricane decided to show up, so I'm back home. It was my grandma's 90th birthday party! At least I got to see her and be at the party, although the visit was short. It was weird being at a family event without my dad. Memorial Day was always difficult for him. He and his brother served in the Navy in WWII. His brother did not make it home. I never forget him and the many others who have died in defense of our country. I am glad for those who made it home who I love so very much, both my dad and my boyfriend.
