One dialysis session can take as long as three and a half hours. What are some of the things you do to keep yourself entertained?

Hi everyone, my mom is just starting dialysis. We are converting my game room in to a multipurpose space allowing for her at home dialysis supplies and equipment. I was wondering if people could post pictures of the ways they have set up their space for ideas? Also, what should I make sure we definitely have as far as table/containers/etc?? Thank you for any help! :) 💜

Hi all! Question; Will Nxstage replace a worn out chair? Also, do your chairs heat up or vibrate? I'm in the middle of a late night dialysis session and was just curious.
Hemodialysis @ home .
Today I start my home hemo training! I am so excited to be out of that center!!! I'm training 5 days a week, so you do dialysis all 5 days? I have a graft so my poor arm will be pretty beat up if I have to stick myself 5 days in a row!
Hemodialysis @ home .Transplanted.
I am waiting to start the home dialysis next month. However it will not be with next stage since the closest one is Pasadena and my nephrologist is not affiliated with that center. It will be Fresenius system, the plumbing and electrical were installed on this past Monday. still feel aprehensive about the dialysis business. O well at least it is available.
