Bill Peckham, along with a few others is organizing a cruise which will have dialyzors together with their dialysis machines! More details here.
The cruise starts from Miami on Jan 3rd, 2010 and returns on the 10th. The best part is people take their NxStage System Ones with them. So, they get excellent dialysis on the cruise. Which is really cool. You don't want to fret about fluids while on a holiday!
I have to absolutely go for this. Ideas, ideas, ideas? I need ideas. I need solutions to the problems in going for this. To start with, I have a valid US visa which is one major headache taken care of. The next step is to actually get to the US in time and get a NxStage machine.
I don't know how difficult this is going to be. I wonder if they give the NxStage machine on hire for a few months.
The best part about this is that I have time to plan for this. January 2010 is a long way off. That gives me enough time to think through this and make it happen.
Let's see how it goes!
