UPDATE: We passed " the white glove test"

Well,
Mr. Clark let me know that we were having an "INSPECTOR"
come to the house.
Another in the preparation for
Peritoneal Dialysis
(at home)
So of course I hustled to get the house ready.
Worried that it was going to be a
"WHITE GLOVE" test!
Hee- Hee
Every one needs this SCARE once in a while!
Sooooo here is all it was:
"Do you have 3 pronged plugs?"
&
"Do you have room for the supplies?
Can I see where you will fit all the supplies?"
SHEW..............
The best news????
He really made Mr. Clark at ease about the whole process.
We both felt like a burden had been lifted.
CAN'T WAIT FOR MR. CLARK TO GET SOME RELIEF!!!!!
No more excess water. A little more energy, &  a little break from the STRICT diet
(he can introduce Potatoes and Tomatoes in moderation)
And he must eat 'ALOT' of protein.
Woo-hoooooo!
Oh, the little things mean so much!
Another tidbit:
Mr. Clark is going to be-able to do "all-night" dialysis
(everynight)
after 2 months of 4 times a day.
(everyday)
AND...
The nurse that came by said,
"Our bed sits too high"
Sooooooooo
We are going shopping for a new bedroom set.
Did I say "S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G"????
OH YA!!!

OH NOOOOoooooooo it's not depressing! I have this idea that I will (in all good intentions) paint my mahogany set BLACK and distress it and put it in the guest bedroom! We are in Diar need of a new mattress and box springs so if we don't buy a set this will do. and LAURA I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE 2 LIL GIRLS TO CUDDLE AND A LIL BOY to WRESTLE AND KISS ON! YIPPEE
