A humorous look at the issues faced by dialysis patients. Dialysis is the most prominent treatment for people with kidney failure, not a subject one would normally associate with humor. But between side effects like cramping that can lead to embarrassing social situations; the use of needles that look like props from a Friday the 13th movie; ridiculous dietary restrictions that make you howl at the moon every time a pizza ad comes on TV; overbearing doctors with the social skills of someone raised by wolves; and many other life and work situations, the author finds plenty to laugh about by keeping the right perspective.

Awesome book for anyone living with 'the Big D', or if you have a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker, etc., living with Dialysis. I learned SO much through Bob's first-hand insights, helpful hints, and basic understanding of how good discipline can set you up to successfully balance your life in so many ways. Can't think of another book where I've learned so much about a very important topic, yet laughed out loud while Bob showed the humor you can find in just about any situation! ANYONE would benefit from reading this book!
We are proud of you Bob!
