Bottom of a Bucket

Kidney Disease is so insidious. There are so many different symptoms which combine to make life difficult.

The incessant itching and insomnia are bad enough. Now as my kidney approaches the end of its function (remember I only have one kidney!) not only has my appetite dropped through the floor but I am having trouble keeping food in my stomach.

Twice yesterday following meals I spent several minutes staring into the bottom of a bucket. This is reminiscent of the symptoms I had in Kenya, prior to the Myeloma diagnosis and are due to kidney failure. We are a week away from Dialysis starting. I am booked in for 2:30 on Wednesday.

Just need to get through these last 6 days!
