All I want for Christmas is a Christmas drink

Posted Dec 18 2009 10:04pm


As we approach the festive season, I thought it would be good to see how the season is marked by the good folk at the Liver Transplant Unit at Flinders Medical Centre in my soon-to-be-new-hometown of Adelaide.

The pre-Christmas season used to be a nightmare for me each year whilst I was on dialysis.  All those people drinking litres of drink (including non-alcoholic, just as eveil in excess to my strict fluid intake quota).  And plenty of opportunities to fall off the diet – something that I must watch to this day.

It really bugged me;  then I thought  ~ Just get over it, John!

And I did.

Stick to your fluid quotas and diets, folks!  Its just not worth the trouble in the medium- and long-term.
