When my oldest son was on dialysis, his port was in his abdomen. He did peritoneal dialysis and would take all his exchange supplies with him in a backpack and go to Disney World and be gone all day. He never complained of being cold but he was on dialysis in summer time. His transplant took place on Sept. 2, 2000 He was in his early 20's when he went into kidney failure. He is now 36 years old.

That is so wonderful to hear!! My DH was not a transplant candidate & it would have been too much for him and/or I to have on peritoneal dialysis, so he was on hemodialysis for the last 6 years of his life. G-d Bless your son & may he watch over him so he lives a long & happy life.

I can attest to the feeling of cold. My port was in my chest, so it was much easier than in my arm and I was actually able to knit during my chemo treatments. Every one in the chemo parlor was always covered in blankets and caps. I love the thought of the arm sleeve, just make sure it isn't too tight and the nurses can get to the injection sight without issue. Please wish her well for me and I hope the chemo isn't too rough on her.

Thank you for asking, her last treatment will take place on Monday. They have been rough, but she is really a trouper. We keep her in our prayers daily, and thank all who have kept her in their thoughts and prayers.
blessings,
Ruth
