Nice to meet everyone. My wife Brenda was diagnosed with CKD 5 years ago and she started dialysis 2 years ago We chose home hemodialysis we set up the machine together I do the needles and we are on the machine 4 days a week about 2 & 1/2 to 3 hours. We chose home dialysis for the convenience of doing it at home and not having to worry about the winter weather. We also like to camp in our rv and can take the machine with us. We went to Gatlinburg for a week this summer and had no problems. Also have had some camping trips local at Taylorsville Lake and Nolin Lake. Had a machine malfunction at Taylorsville and NxStage sent a replacement machine the next day from Tennessee
Living with type 2 diabetes since 2012. supporting a spouse Hemodialysis @ home since 2015.
