Thanks guys. I'm OK. Not great, but OK. The perfect storm of crap happened. First, they moved dialysis back a day from Monday to Sunday because of Christmas Day being Monday. Then Wednesday (the next treatment) my battery went dead and I couldn't get a jump, so I missed the treatment. I also caught a cold from someone in my family, so my persistent cough got worse. Thursday, I coughed up all sorts of alien life forms, so I called the doctor. I got the next available appointment which was Friday at 10AM. From the doctor's office, I went straight to the ER because I was "full of fluid" in my lungs. I spent all day and most of the night in the ER, so I missed yet another dialysis treatment (it is now Saturday, 7 days since the last treatment, I normally get 3 treatments per week). So..........

I spent 9 days in the hospital and I left with the cough fully intact. Gotta love doctors NOT paying attention to what you say.

When got out of there, my pipes at home had frozen. NO water in the house..... Luckily, I missed the 0 degree temperatures while my heat wasn't working. My brother-in-law fixed the heat while I was in the hospital. I also missed the 11 inches of snow we got. Luckily, one of my neighbors shoveled my path from the sidewalk to the front door (which is about 100 feet from the sidewalk). I can no longer shovel that path.

So, all in all, not that bad as hospital trips go, except I still have this damn cough. I was hoping that being in the hospital, they would finally figure it out and solve it, but no.....

On a more positive note, I am almost back on the transplant list. another rollercoaster ride. I was "activated" and then "deactivated" in about 5 minutes last Tuesday. I now have 2 more tests to complete. I am getting really fucking fed up with these test that keep being added AFTER I was told all the testing was done.
