Back to work...and on HD

Postby George » Sun May 30, 2004 11:28 am

Just a quick update, I started back to work last week after 3 weeks on HD. I feel quite well at the moment, however there have been a few problems on the way that has or will get sorted. I have had low bp, then problems with clotting..this is still on-going.

I say I started work, but in fact only worked 2 half days and a full day..2 half days then off to dialysis in Leeds GI. My employers have been supportive so far and told me to use last years leave entiltlments I had left before the end of June. I had 9 days to get in, so i'm off all next week and then one day a week for the rest of June...not bad eh :lol:

To me HD was not the end of the road, but a 'New Beginning'

Hi George..

Just admiration for you on working on haemodialysis.. I studied on haemodialysis full time,.. not quite the same thing as they charge you for it:D But still a workload..

Hope you get those glitches sorted and smoothed out soon..

Hi George
Good to hear that things are going reasonably smooth. Won't take long for you to get into some sort of pattern. Also good to hear that your employers are supportive.
I must get around to posting an update on Jenny!!!
Take care for now.
