Today is the last Sunday that I will be on dialysis in Tallaght University Hospital. No, I haven’t got a transplant. No, I don’t not need dialysis.

Why, then?

It is because my care is being transferred to the Midlands Regional Hospital in Tullamore (sister hospital to where this all started in Port Laoise).

My actual last session in Tallaght is due to be on Friday, so it is the beginning of the end of the Tallaght months. I am so grateful for all the care I have received.

I may be in Tullamore but I will always have started dialysis in Tallaght. Just as I receive HIV care in St James’s in Dublin but I started in the Royal Victoria in Belfast.

Looking towards the future and getting more settled.
