Traveling and Thriving with Home Hemodialysis
Embracing home dialysis, embracing life
Now that Ramona has made home dialysis a part of her life, she tries to make the most of her time on treatment. “When I’m on the machine at home, I feel normal—I feel in control. My husband and I sit down, we laugh, we talk, or I take care of phone calls. It’s quality time.” At home or on vacation, Ramona also says she just feels better. “I see the difference in my mindset. I go shopping, I go to the mall, I go out to eat—I’m out from 1pm – 10pm and I walk all over the place.” For this woman on the go, home dialysis is the ticket to thriving.
