Dialysis And Donations

Hey everyone, I hope you’re enjoying your Summer. It’s been a while since I’ve written about dialysis so I figured that now would be as good a time as any.

Not too much has happened since my last dialysis post. As far as I’ve been told, I’ve completed all the tests that are needed to be put on the transplant list. I’ll know more in August when the dialysis doctor comes to the clinic but things are moving along.


I’ve been suffering from Restless Leg Syndrome for a little over a month now which is something new and I had an episode the other day with extreme chest pain which the nurses thought could be a mild heart attack. I was given a couple of shots of Nitro and the pain eventually subsided. Nothing like this has happened since and I’m hoping it doesn’t happen again!

I’m sure most of you are aware of the struggles that we’re having with the constant traveling we have to do so I decided to contact a few gas companies in our area for some assistance. Of all the ones that we contacted, Irving Oil Company was the only one to respond.
Out of the kindness of their hearts their donations committee sent a gift card to assist with my travel expenses. So to Irving Oil Company we give a huge THANK YOU. The work you do helping people in the communities around you is greatly appreciated.

    why not try getting your story more out there like going to a local radio or TV station maybe they can air your story and get you some financial help or maybe we can get it to trend on FB or TW?

  2. So admirable when companies and people give to those in need. Irving Oil has my support. Thank you so much for sharing and just say the word if you ever need anything.

    • We couldn’t agree more. It’s hard to find companies that help individuals nowadays. It’s larger groups that they prefer to help. We love supporting the smaller, family run businesses that support the people in their community and give back. ~J~
