The week that was.........
Certainly one to remember!
This picture of Brett is day 1 of dialysis 1st May 2012.
It has been a big week.
One we new was coming  but still in denial until it actually happened.
But it is here and it is our now and this is our life.
I was inspired to do this short video log after reading this post that Megan
put up on her blog a couple of weeks ago.
Not that a couple of weeks ago did we ever think we were so close to Brett starting dialysis.
Considering we have been on this knifes edge with this for about 2 years,
wondering if we would get through the next holiday, joyful that the next holiday was here
and we would be able to do it,
and all the stress and tension that goes with the unknown, bad health, a bit of depression, 
even so, we are still in shock that this has started now and this is what we have to deal with.
No amount of education and support from the hospital can ever really prepare you,
although in saying that, every single nurse,
counsellor and specialist has been fantastic and I
can not speak highly enough of everyone we have been in contact with at Royal Perth Hospital.
On the other hand, now that it has started we are glad, it is here,
it is a part of our life and such is life that you keep putting one foot in front of the other
and you just do it and deal with it!

This video log is day 3 of dialysis 5th May 2012, a much happier Brett.

So just in case this might be helpful to someone else in a similar situation, we did these short
video logs for anyone interested in having a listen.

Thanks for being so inspirational Megan
