Dialysis patients take something called a binder. This is a simple pill that you take with meals to help eliminate phosphorous from the body, since the machine can't do that adequately. In my case, I was taking a binder last year that disagreed with me...thus the episodes of unwell that caused me to be sick and miss treatment.
I think the new binder is doing the exact same thing, and especially now that we increased the dosage to TWO pills with meals.
I'll meet with the dietician tomorrow to discuss our next options, but for now, at least...I feel slightly better knowing what sent me to bed the last few days.
(At least that's my guess. For all I know, it was a bug or maybe food poisoning. Who knows?)
Enough of that.
I'm sitting upright today, which is a vast improvement. There are no to-do lists or crazy plans in my future...just lots of fluid and maybe a few scrambled eggs and dry toast. I think today was supposed to be a laundry and cube room studio sorting day, but that will just have to wait.
I tucked the cardinal canvas away for a few days to play with the Mill Hill. The larger kits do take much longer to finish (as a very astute friend pointed out in the comments in this here blog), so I am just enjoying the process and it'll get done when it gets done.
The sun is trying to peek through the dense grey clouds today, so I'm hoping for a bit of napping with my face in a splash of sunlight. Oh, how I loved that afternoon snoozy nap at Chez Spinster with my face in the sun! I'm so very thankful that my bedroom here captures the same light!
That's my report for today, Dearies. I hope you will come tell me all about the comings and goings in your part of the world!
