TJ and I went to our first training session for his at-home dialysis, also known as peritoneal dialysis. I think this is going to be easier on his system and will be more comfortable doing it in his own home. It's not for everyone though, you have to have a room with limited airflow and a way to keep things as germ free as possible. We will be training for the rest of the week. I was interested in doing this with him because I might be looking at dialysis in the near future. With this disease, it doesn't pay to bury your head in the sand.
