My name is Guy and I'm Karens~ Fiance and Care Taker. I would like to know how many others on the forum are getting Peritoneal Dialysis, Nocturnal or Daytime treatments, How many have Animals and how many do you have? Karen and I have 8 Cats and a Sheltie Collie, the animals are karen's life. I understand as a Care Taker that the Treatment room has to be sterile, free from movement of little air, but the way Karen lets the animals on the bed, which I like them to sleep with us, but since Karen is getting Nocturnal, while she sleeps, I feel like I'll have to "Post Guard" outside of our bedroom to watch the animals and she still wants the dog to be able to sleep in bed, maybe 1 cat. And since I'm a clean freak, the sanitary problems are solved but,...the movement of animal "hair" is what I'm worried about? Plus the animals cats love Karen and one there's always one of the cats that want to be "on her " 24/7. I'm worried about the animal hair and the safety of Karen's Cath line in her stomach. Should I be??
Thank you for reading,
