Appointment today

We have an appointment with the Kidney Specialist this afternoon. As far as I know, it's the fistula installation.

This:

"When we put a new fistula in someone we don't needle it for 6 wks. In the mean time we put in a permacath (line in the neck) to dialyse through until the fistula has matured"

.. from a friend, who is a Renal Nurse in Australia, who has been a huge help over the last couple of months.

Maybe this is what they'll do today. More updates through-out the day.
