H2O-hhh Noes!

I'm bad. I know I haven't been drinking enough water, lately, yet I haven't done anything about it.

H2O-hhh, noes!

I never would've thought one of the most challenging parts of a kidney transplant would be getting enough to drink. I never would've guessed I would struggle with fluid intake after so many fluid restrictions for the years I was on dialysis.

It was probably the last thing I would've thought of.

Since my most recent surgery (my hoo-hoo-ectomy) I haven't had an appetite for much of anything or even the desire to drink. It doesn't help that we ran out of bottled water earlier tonight - and I can't drink tap or fridge-filtered water. Yuck.

I've really got to get out of the house tomorrow to make a trip to the grocery store. We're getting low on the meal basics, even. Getting out means wearing pants which I'm still not enthused about.

Oh well! Maybe the SmartWater will be on sale...

Great blog Krissi! Congratulations to you. I have set up a website to help my dad locate a kidney: www.HelpLen.com


Are you in the US? I don't know if it is very ethical for you (or anyone else) to post a "want ad" on the internet for a kidney. Especially if you are going through the regular UNOS process - I would be careful that you aren't dishonest with them.

I do hope your father finds health and I wish the best to you and your family. I hope I will live to reach the age of at least ten years younger than your dad :)
