Not a Dummy for too much longer

We just received these 2 books in the mail. Yes, we are dummies now, but hopefully that's going to change. The flash is for Jason. The photoshop is for me.

My ENT appointment went well on Tuesday. I haven't heard back from Duke about my lab work though. I know it usually takes a couple of days for some of these viral tests to come back. I've been extremely tired and nauseous the past week. Me thinks it might be the medications, but we'll see.

Casey has a friend coming home with her tomorrow from school. They are going to a youth function at our church tomorrow night, and then on Saturday, we are going to The Cheesecake Factory for lunch and then to some vintage stores in Charlotte. Casey and her friends are all into the vintage look now. We are dragging Jason along. At least he will enjoy the lunch. :) I'm hoping my nausea doesn't rear it's ugly head on Saturday. I would hate to miss out on that meal.

In other news... my sis and her hubby just bought a new house. It's in the same neighborhood as the one they have now, but it's larger. I would love to move in their neighborhood. Hopefully, if Jason and I can sell our house this spring, we can look there. Just not really sure if that's going to happen in this market.

Casey has a consult with the orthodontist soon. She'll be getting the dreaded braces within the next month or so. I am hoping she won't have to have them on long. I only had mine for 18 months.

My new photography class starts next week. I'm really excited about it. This class is going to focus a lot on lighting. Something I'm still having trouble with. There is just so much to learn.

Ok that's all the randomness I can think of now. I hope all of you are having a wonderful week!


UPDATE: Well, Duke just called. I tested negative for the viruses, but my creatinine is still going up, which is not a good sign. I have an appt. to go see the kidney transplant doc on the 25th, and they said I should plan on staying in the hospital for some tests and a biopsy of the kidney. Two things that she mentioned it could be are Prograf (an anti-rejection med) toxicity or rejection. The biopsy will most likely give them the answer. Please pray that whatever they find can be easily treated.

I'm with Carrie. I started daydreaming about the yummy menu at Cheesecake Factory (hehe the initials are CF).

I hope everything goes superbly with your biopsy.
