Dialysis 

“Why do you not have an arterivenous fistula , that’s the stands of care . Why do you get dialysis with a catheter ”

I asked the  somewhat attractive 50 some year old woman laying in the bed 

” I don’t plan to stay on dialysis that long” she said without much emotions

“What do you mean ” I asked

Now her eyes teared. 

“I  been sick for 15 years . I don’t want to continue dialysis . I hate it ”

If she hates dialysis that much why start it in the first place.

She read the question in my eyes

“My parents are still alive.  They are in their 90’s. I have to wait”

Now it all made sense .
