I was taken off the Kidney Transplant list temporarily, due to a stint in hospital for a few weeks/. This has deflated me greatly. As anyone on the Transplant list could tell you. I have a 2 yearly update due soon. All patients are reviewed every 24 months. To check for their fitness and we are in good health. I wait patiently for my consultant Dr, to brake the news to me, as he has the answers I need. God bless the man. He was on a cycling vacation, peddling in the Italian alps or some other beautiful location. What a dedicated man he is for keeping his heart and body in great working order, I know this might seem extreme, to me our doctor is the best. He cares about all our welfares greatly. He agrees with what I say because he knows I know my own body and mind, after spending 10 years as a Kidney patient in England, in a Nephrology renal hospital in Oxfordshire. Every week I would do my 3 days on my dialysis machine. I spent 5 hours of my day having my blood cleansed, of waste toxins and have any fluids removed gently. The student nurses and interns to be would be learning from us, then the patients learnt from the student nurses. Win-win scenario all around. Our team were a jolly bunch and treated us with respect for the help we gave our nurses and carers. II long to get my final gift of life and live normally Namaste dear ones .
My goodness, how unbelievable next month, I will be 2 years on the kidney transplant list. There have been good sessions and the not so special times with my new dialysis machine. I call this machine Mabel. I felt it was appropriate. Mable is a nicer name than Sid which was my old machines nickname. There are times when I feel my inner power getting low however, I always manage to recharge the power, I fight on ferociously for my life. The thought of getting my fourth successful kidney transplant always puts a pep in my step, or a Mo in my Mojo. I give gratitude to all donor living or just passed that decides leaves the legacy of their human body organs. That other ill people may benefit from these donated organs. God bless us all. Namaste dear hearts
May yesterdays trials get left behind May today’s tribulations bring us love and abundance May we make memorable memories of a May almost gone by. May we spread our light, near and far, to help others that stand alone in fear and darkness Namaste dear ones Another day nearer the New Kidney transplant
I’m delighted to get the go-ahead from my sponsors. For the next writing project, I have 12 months of funded help from my writing coach. Thanks to the Waterford Healing Arts Trust at the University hospital Waterford. Not forgetting our amazing Sister Brenda who allows these projects for her patients. A wonderful woman is our Brenda. I need his help to keep me on track Otherwise my mind might wander onto other paths and my book will be an unpublished manuscript laying forlornly under my bed as it gathers dust. Well, dear ones keep your eyes peeled for Liz McCue’s next book of small stories and a surprise to go with it 🙂 Do what you love and love what you do. Namaste
Another week of haemodialysis has finished. The Summer months are passing quickly. I’m back on my kidney transplant waiting list, after my respiratory pneumonia, a serious infection that lingered in the membranes that line the lungs. I’m blessed I’m in top form raring to get my 4th gift of life and loving life/ I give gratitude for having two days of relief fro the harsh needling 3 times weekly. However, needing the needles as my life support axis is quite different. I actually cry sometimes due to the sharp pain in my leg graft an artificial vein made with a plastic membrane inserted in the left top leg The blood flows through this tube the nurses can insert the needles into this tube. Thank God for the ingenuity of our health care system. Let us give our hard-working nurses the respect they deserve. three cheers to all the wonderful nursing teams that keep many of alive Goodnight followers Thank you for reading tonight’s post,
