I think the most frustrating part of this whole dialysis thing is the ups and downs of it.  Just when I think I've got it figured out and have a good session...all hell breaks loose and I have two bad sessions in a row.

I also think I am jinxing myself, because I got in the chair yesterday and said "I'm going to run perfectly green all day and just sit here and watch Flosstube and look out the window and not bother anybody and then go home ant eat pizza."


First, I clotted.  Then, my arm started to hurt amd then it hurt really really really bad and they had to pull me off early.  Finally, once I got back to CS2, I was so darn drained I could barely make it to the big girl sleigh bed.

BUT!  Today the sun is shining and I am awake and ready to start playing with my Wendy Moore class piece.  Rich is watching horse racing all day and I am going to put the ear thingies in amd sit in my Happy Chair with Flosstube for company and just go pull thread through canvas and be swell.

Here's hoping that your very own weekend is wonderfully perfect in every way and that you get to do whatever it is you want to do.  

Come tell me all about it!


  1. So sorry, Coni dear, about the glitch in your treatment..
    Best laid plans of the star and chorus, only to go awry.
    The dawn of a new day brings you the promise of Flosstube
    stitching and Rich's company amid horses...and pizza?
    We are going to be raining and windy all day and through the night, so your plan would do well here, as well. Hope
    the dialysis machine gets to know you better and in future cooperates with your projected schedule...Enjoy
    this day ....

  2. Aw, Coni, I'm so sorry it's taking a while to get "right". I think about you frequently through the day, especially on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, hoping to send you some good vibrations.

  3. So sorry you are having issues with the dialysis! Praying for smooth sailing from now on.

  4. Oh, Coni, I am so sorry to learn that dialysis was once again craptastic. I’m hoping and and praying along with the others for some relief from the problems and for all to go smoothly for you......SOON!
    I was hoping for sun and temps in the 50’s today. The temps may be in the 50’s, but it is another dreary day. Sun, where are you?!!!! It makes it very hard for me to get motivated when you are not here!

  5. Gee, I thought it was all worked out as well. I hope you can get enough stitchy time to fade that less than perfect memory. I got stitch some today and that always makes me happy.

  6. Enjoy your day away from dialysis. Praying that your treatments get worked out for you.

  8. Oh no! Hope your next trip to the dialysis chair goes more smoothly!

  9. I’m sorry you are going through so much. I am lifting you in prayer. I have always loved you blog and after a long hiatus I am back reading and posting again though I have a new blog name as my old one got hacked.

  10. So sorry you had a bad time of your treatment; I can only imagine how frustrating and painful it must be. Praying for you to have a better experience going forward. I was fortunate to get to have some of my stitching friends come to my house on Sunday to stitch, visit, and eat goodies. I hope that things get better for you so you can have a "stitchy" day too. Take care - hugs to you.
