ED: Youtube removed my last video due to a terms of service violation, so I have uploaded another and removed the google ads (I think you are not allowed to have google ads on pages with youtube videos).
I recorded a video of Des hooking me up at dialysis with my new Macbook Pro’s built-in iSight camera. We are 5 weeks into the training now and things are going pretty good. The first thing we have to master is the cannulation (the poking of the needles into my arm). After that comes the training on how to use the NxStage home hemo-dialysis machine; which we are going to start next Monday.
In this video she has a little bit of trouble with the needle as we are switching from sharp needles (used to establish the tunnels or, button holes, that the dull needles use) to button hole or dull needles. The good thing about the dull needles is it is practically impossible to poke completely through the vein.
She has been doing really good and I am so lucky to have wife that can do this for me, and do it well.
