They've stopped treating my restless leg syndrome during dialysis. So my fantastic friend came over and massaged my feet for over 45 mins. I am blessed. So far I am still feeling calm and with no restlessness

Starry starry night, Paint your palette blue and grey

Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the
Darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils

Catch the breeze and the winter chills

Wednesday's ride Paige. She usually can't take me because of school activities. It's always so fun when we can get together even if it's only for a few minutes. And she is much more fun than I am. My socks were a Christmas gift from my son Travis who is in Japan right now. Only 3.5 months and he will be home. This moma can hardly wait.

Happy Easter. I took an Easter basket with eggs filled with mostly none candy items (Easter erasure and plastic bugs, dollar store treasures). And went to each of my Dr offices in the building with my dialysis center and delivered goodies. Then I went to dialysis and went to each dialysis mate and delivered them eggs and candy both regular and diabetic. I had so much fun. I just love my dialysis mates! I love it when they are feeling good and I'm sad when they're not. It's nice getting to know their families. Some of them now take pictures of me. Who would have thought? Not me. This whole thing started as a lark. And when I started to Instagram my socks I thought I should have a purpose. I never thought this would help me as much me as much as it has. At first making up costumes distracted me from thinking about the fact I was going to get 2 huge gauge needles shoved in my arm later that day. After being distracted for so long I really stopped caring or worrying about it. Something I thought would never happen. And now I'm shoving those needles in my own arm. A lot can happen in 9 yrs.
Being the Easter Bunny made Friday much easier. And I wanted to make it easier for my nurse too. She was having a hard time leaving us.
Thanks for caring and letting me talk. It helps me a lot. And forgive me for not proof reading. I'm being lazy. Which after procrastinating is par for the course don't you think?

Wednesday's socks and the apron my sister made me. Getting ready for Friday's #Easters look. I received devastating news at dialysis that night. I had to wait until today to post. My dialysis nurse of 5 yrs. Who got me through my #nephrologist retiring, and so many things is moving on to new adventures. I get really attached to people who keep me alive. And we had so much fun together. When my online shopping was so out of control we would have such a blast opening my packages together. And I would order so many phallic type objects to embarrass her. And my dialysis mate Diana would love so loud. And her laugh was so fun and beautiful. We had such a blast. Diana died unexpectedly last fall. It's going to be so extra hard with both of them gone. I don't even feel like wearing socks or dressing up tomorrow. But I make so many of my dialysis mates smile and I would hate to let them down. I guess you fake it till you make it. I almost feel as sad as when my son passed away. Sometimes change really really hurts. This nurse was the first nurse that really listen to me. She noticed there was a problem between my new inherited nephrologist and me and worked and fixed our personality differences. Now my Dr. and I have fun. I never had a panic attack until my old nephrologist retired. But if I have one tomorrow I might not get my usual medicine and dialysis is unbearable without it. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­

Last Wednesday's ride Janelle! And my favorite color. I couldn't decide on which socks and my husband said wear these-they look like they are thinking trying to decide like you are. He's so smart.

Can you guess my socks? Ignore the rabbit ears. I couldn't find the right ears in time. Swipe to see if you guessed correctly or to see the socks.
Pictured with me is my GI specialist who is a dear, and makes this dreadful topic talkable for me.
My sweet neighbor Shaylyn came over the other day with a sackful of fuzzy socks and told me to pick the ones I liked and gave them to me. #imsolucky #greatneighbors

Last Monday was Zebra day! Even though you can't see it well I like it best when I can't write Please be an organ, tissue and bone marrow donor on my pictures. This isn't the best photo editor but I'll keep looking. But I feel better posting pictures like this. And thank you @hotsoxco for the cute socks. You really need to check their soxs out!

Wed.. Socks. You all guessed I was dressed as a galaxy. So I wore my star from @getsocked.au all the way from down under Australia. It's just cool to me that I'm wearing socks from #Australia. You should try some - soon.

Wednesday's socks - My Stop making sense socks. My life has kind of stopped making sense....in a way. It's hard to explain. I'm sure part of it is the time of year (Seasonal Affect Disorder is rough) but I think another part is I want a vacation. A vacation from dialysis. I've been doing it for 9 yrs now. I think a month off would be nice. But I know there is no vacation from dialysis except death and I do NOT want that at all. I want grandbabies and puppies. That's it since none of my boys are even dating I need a puppy. I love how talking things out clears your mind.
A puppy would be the perfect substitute for a vacay! What do you think hon?

My dialysis nurse is the sweetest. When I was talking to her about wanting a vacation from dialysis the first thing she said was "What can I do to make this feel more like a vacation? "
I can't think of a thing she could do to make my treatments any nicer.
I feel better alreadyπŸ––πŸ––πŸ––πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ #DialysisKeepsMeAlive
