Well, well, what can I say? It all started last Friday, I switched my dialysis session from Friday afternoon to Friday morning because I had a doctor's appt. in the afternoon. So that's one more half day to my weekend.
Now, I'll admit I wasn't really watching my fluid intake. As a result, on Monday, I was shocked to realize that I had taken in 5.2kgs in fluids and food! As the maximum they can extract from me is 4kgs, I went home 'owing' the machine 1kg!
I thought I could rectify that today but I had put on 2.8kgs, which makes the total 3.8kgs that they have to extract from me. Well, I was ravenously hungry by 4.30pm, and when the Malays nurses went to get their dinner from the Ramadhan Bazaar, I requested 2 little sardine curry puffs.
Towards the final half hour of my treatment, my blood pressure stared to drop and my face began to get pale, so I was actually required to drink some more water. And add the curry puffs to that plus the extra saline pumped into me because of my low bp, I now owe the machine 0.7kgs! ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Can I say that again? ARRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
And when I got home and checked my email, I was reminded that this Saturday, I have a farewell dinner to attend for my Home Fellowship. One I don't want to miss! AND I'm going out Thursday noon with a friend from brunch. I've already made up my mind, no breakfast and no lunch tomorrow, just that brunch and a light dinner. I only hope I don't drink too much between now and next Monday. I hope I will return to my regular weight by next Monday........ARRRRHHHGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
