  • Hi Meghan I wish I could give you a big hug in person. Hope everything goes well today I’ll be thinking of you. I know how scary it is. My husband did his first dialysis treatment a year ago today so I have already been down the road your on. And it’s ok to be feeling the way you do I know I was a nervous wreck. Keep us posted.
