"Unfortunatly this will probably happen again. Getting the 2 big needles into the fistula, which is deep, is apparently not easy for many nurses. The vessel walls are not hardened and scarred yet, so they can infiltrate easily. Its easy to stick the…"
"And the bruising that is going to keep coming up, is only going to get worse. Its going to take a month for all that blood in there to break down and dissolve. The fistula is still new, so people seem to have these infiltration problems at first for…"

Hi Sharon- Sorry I haven't checked in for a while. I have had some medical problems of my own. But, enough about me. I am glad that Jon is home again. I know he is too. Nothing like men in the hospital, a nightmare to say the least. I hope he stays away from there for a long while. How is Alex doing ? Has he adjusted to school?

Hello Sharon. How is Jon? I am worried about him. Sorry he had to cancel D. If he does not get any better make sure he sees the doctor. I have a sinus attack affecting my right eye. It is driving me crazy. Did Alex ever meet with his friend? I hope your next appointment at school you get some answers. Tell Jon he is in my prayers as well as you and Alex. A BIG HUG. Reed
Hi Sharon. I have been up since 3AM. I wrote to Jon. It is not due to Russ's coughng. I just could not sleep. It is nice and quiet at that hour I got a lot done. BG 108. I hope Jon had a chance to snooze at D. How is Alex? You making any headway with the school? All this is new to him and to you folks. He will turn it around. I just hope the kids do not tease him. TOPS tomorrow. I have a speaker coming. Take good care and say hello to Alex for me. HUGS,Reed
Hello Sharon. Feeling a little more like a normal person. We both had a good night. The pharmacist told Russ to take MUCINEX tablets rather than the liquid and it really worked. Tom is here so Reed's Diner open for the weekend. Can you believe it is 80 degrees here in January? Bg 102. How is my buddy Alex doing? Is school any better? I hope the kids are more friendly. I have not gone out as the flu is raging, What I had was bad enough, What have you been up to? Is the weather warm there? I heard from Jon this morning. We both are early birds. Take good care of yourself. My best to lex and have a good weekend. HUGS,Reed
Hi there, How are you this weekend? I wanted to thank you for giving me that advice to go get my toe looked at. The doctor ended up lancing it and giving me antibiotics for a week and now it is all better. I was kind of scared but all ended well. I went and got some comfortable shoes with plenty of room in the toe area. So I hope that you are having a nice weekend and that your grandson is doing fine. How is Sparky? I hope you all had a nice Holiday Season. I can't believe that it is the New Year already. Have a nice Saturday. It is nice and sunny here and a good day for a walk. I am deep into cleaning my closets and drawers and finding all kinds of interesting stuff. Lots.
