@ldrlaw I am on PD and they stressed to the nth degree, about infection! Each day I clean my exit site and apply antibiotic cream to it, and keep it covered. Your husband will proably go through what I call "PD Boot Camp", where they train you to do the dialysis at home, and teach you to be on the lookout for infections, the signs to watch for, etc. I have a non-working fistula in my lower right arm, and if something happens, they will need to use a chest catheter. That scares me the most!

Yes Ginger, thanks. I anticipate that we both will be in classes over a period of at least a week to learn how to care for this
