Casey definitely had a full long weekend. She had a blast on Sunday skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain with her best friend Megan. Casey hasn't been skiing since she was 9 years old. I am not "allowed" to do any sports that may cause injury, because of my osteoporosis. It's been almost 3 years now since I broke my arm from a fall while I was ice skating, soooo I'm glad Casey was able to go with a friend. She said she did pretty good and only fell once.
On Monday, we went to see Bride Wars. What a cute movie!!! We loved it. It didn't get very good reviews, but I don't see why. Marley and Me got better reviews and this movie was MUCH better. I think the critics sometimes don't even watch the movies that they critique. We also went out to eat with Casey's best friend on Monday. Casey was exhausted from her ski trip, so Monday night, she slept 13 1/2 hours.
Yesterday, we went to the mall with some friends of ours. Casey got 2 pairs of shoes, 2 shirts, and some jewelry. We then went to Ruby Tuesday to eat. What a mistake! I used to love that place, but their entire menu has changed, and basically it's just horrible food loaded with spices and salt to cover up how bad it is. It was also expensive for what you get. I will never go back. I'm getting really tired of those cookie cutter restaurants anyway. We went back to the mall after we ate and Casey and her friend Michele tried on prom dresses. It's great entertainment for them, and it's free!! LOL. They had so much fun trying on dresses. Here are a few pictures, but please excuse the blurriness. My hands shake from the medications I'm on, and Casey's camera doesn't have an image stabilizer, so this is what you get...
We went to Duke today for my kidney transplant appointment. I've been having some tenderness around my kidney incision, but the surgeon didn't think there was anything to be concerned about. He said he would wait until my labs come back, and if they didn't look as good as they have been, he would schedule an ultrasound. I also left a message for my lung transplant coordinator about my sinus issues. I don't think the Cipro is helping, and my pulmonologist wanted me to let him know if it wasn't. I think my sinuses are getting worse. My appointment with the ENT isn't for 2 more weeks, so I may have to go on IV's before then. They will call me back tomorrow probably.
After we left Duke, my mom, Casey and I ate at this wonderful Italian restaurant. Here is a picture of Casey outside the restaurant. As you can see, Durham got a little snow yesterday. Most of it has already melted though...
I dropped Casey off at her youth group meeting at our church a little while ago. She got her homework done today while she waited for me to see the doctor, so she's all set to go back to school tomorrow. :( She goes to her dad's house tonight.
Jason has been working everyday for a week now. He will be off Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If I don't have to go in the hospital for IV's, we are going to do some work around the house on Saturday, and go to his nephew's baptism on Sunday.
I'm getting ready to start my online photography class. I'll let you know how it goes. I'm also going to get on the treadmill tonight. It's been 4 days since I've been on it.
