On Tuesday, monthly blood tests were taken while I was on dialysis. Unfortunately, this was after I had an extra day to wait for that dialysis. This would mean that the results would be skewed. Fortunately, the unit manager decreed that we would repeat the tests on Wednesday to get more representative results. As he put it,

You work so hard to get decent eKt/V during the month; you should benefit from it in the monthly blood tests. So we will wait and see what the results are. I trust that I will get them on Friday.

Thursday sees me heading to the dentist’s in the morning and then on to the HIV clinic at Beaumont Hospital in north Dublin, where there will be more blood tests!

In the afternoon, I hope to meet up with a friend from Scouts to give her a small gift for Christmas.
