No Wheels

After all the high hopes of last week, this week let the air out of our balloon.

Monday two people called off work from Dwight's unit at Mill Run so he didn't get into his wheelchair and didn't get his 'Run' in the halls. Tuesday was dialysis, which tires Dwight. Wednesday off to a Dr and then the start of a new treatment, so no wheelchair Wednesday.

And then today--Unbelievable--off to an appointment at 7:30 AM. An hour of waiting on a stretcher in the hall for the Doctor to come in. The Dr just makes small talk, so Dwight asks--'why am I here?' to which the Dr says, 'I don't know, let me find out.' For real. He had no reason.

Back to Mill Run for breakfast at 10:30 and then off to dialysis.

Tomorrow is an appointment to have the ports replaced for dialysis, so it looks like the wheelchair will sit another day. Needless to say Dwight is disappointed about this after the progress last week.

Hopefully, this is just a short set back and he will be wheeling around again next week. Soon he will be out and about, making friends and bringing smiles to faces.

If you would like to send him a card:
