Thank You, Home Dialysis Central

A grateful thank you is extended to Home Dialysis Central (http://www.homedialysis.org/). This website provides support and information regarding anything pertaining to Home Dialysis. Their slogun, "There's no place like home" says it all.

Jane McClure and I are appreciative that Home Dialysis Central is now listing our book "Arranging Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home: 'The Underwear Factor." This book starts where Home Training leaves off, by guiding the reader through the basics of creating your own Home Dialysis Center--one that is efficient, safe, and comfortable!

Home Dialysis Central is also listing my book, "Complications: A Doctor's Love Story." This is the true story of my husband Steve and his precipitous fall into renal failure. It's a frank story about our early adeventures in Home Dialysis. But it's also a story of finding love in midlife, forming a family, and generally trying to make the best of the lives we have. There are so few personal stories written which deal with kidney disease!

Part of my writing these books had to do with the fact that I'd wished Steve and I had some sort of roadmap to help us in the early days of his illness. Knowing that other people shared similar problems, and faced similar challenges would have been helpful--particularly with the problem solving approach of "Arranging Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home."

Thank you, Home Dialysis Central, for helping us get this information into the hands of people who may benefit!
Take care. Linda Gromko, MD
