If I miss dialysis six times in a row, I’m dead.  So this has to absolutely be taken care of.  I have to have rides there and back.  And every driver has been fantastic.  To me, they’re my angels.

LAMONT

Care Receiver

Most of the time I’m just sitting at home by myself, and I have a talking books program, and being that I like sports I can listen to the ball games on the radio. But that’s my life. It’s like I don’t have quality time with somebody to spend with them. So this is what helps: being able to meet every other week. I always look forward to that day, because I’m going to have someone I can talk to.

She called and told me that they had two children, and asked me if that made a difference, and I said, “That adds to it.” The children are so active, and that made a big difference. They’re really a Godsend for me. I feel exuberated. I’m exhausted, but it’s a good exhausted.
