I have not been doing a good job of keeping up with my blogger friends lately.
I am behind on my photography classes.
My floors need mopping.
Closed minded people make me hysterical sometimes.
I am only on page 64 of the book I'm reading for the online book club.
I went back to bed after taking Casey to school and slept until 2:20 this afternoon.
My friend Jeri, who had a double lung transplant and liver transplant last Thursday, is doing GREAT! She might be getting out of the hospital tomorrow!!! Is that unbelievable or what? I'm so happy for her. What a fighter she is.
My friend Clark, who has cancer and was told to call in hospice, is doing better. He is still in Mexico receiving treatment, and he is sitting up eating and feeling stronger. Yay!!! Definitely an answer to prayer! He still needs your thoughts and prayers though. He isn't out of the woods by any means, but it's just great to hear that he's feeling better and actually able to eat instead of having to rely on parenteral nutrition.
My kidney transplant appointment was very uneventful yesterday! That's a great thing. :) When the doc came in, I was eating chocolate because my sugar was low. For all of you diabetics, you know how sometimes you get a little delirious when your sugar gets low? Well, he must have thought I was a little off my rocker. I acted a little bit like I was drunk. Thankfully, Casey was in there to correct anything I said that was off. haha. I was fine after about 10 minutes. Anyway, my labs look great!!
I got to see 2 transplant friends yesterday. I had met one of the girls right before my transplant. She was about a year out of her transplant when I first met her, but was still on oxygen. She had a really rough time after her transplant, but she's been doing great ever since. She looked awesome yesterday, and we had a great lunch together. Then I got to see another friend, who I only knew online. She was speaking to healthcare workers at Duke about patient advocacy, so Mom, Casey and I went to hear her speak. What a great speaker she is... and so funny! I got to meet her briefly afterward. It's so much fun meeting online friends for the first time in person. I have NEVER been disappointed!
I hope all of you are having a great week! Casey went back to school today. Their spring break was cut short, because of make-up snow days. We did have a good week though!!
Casey just sent me this picture. She took it on her phone yesterday. It's of me and Dana, my friend I met for lunch yesterday...
