When Steve Williams' kidneys quit working in September 2007, he and his wife Dr. Linda Gromko were presented with two choices: a kidney transplant or kidney dialysis (the kidney machine). There was, of course, the option of no treatment - but that would mean certain death for this husband and father of a teenaged daughter. Steve and Linda eagerly embraced the technology of Home Dialysis - treatments that could be done on their own time and on their own terms. But nothing could have prepared them for the onslaught of medical supplies that descended upon their home, making it seem more like a medical clinic or an ICU! Home Dialysis - while life saving - was taking over, consuming their lives and redefining their family as one tethered to illness. That's where Interior Designer Jane McClure saved the day. Arraning Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home: The Underwear Factor shows you how to: * Create your Home Center for Dialysis * Design a space that is comfortable, easy to use * Manage the storage of necessary medical supplies * Use the Interior Designers' tricks of the trade * Save money through sure-fire choices * Learn where professional decorators shop for less * Support the caregiver & prevent burnout * Reclaim as much of your normal life as you can! (Note: this book applies to both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.)
