Other than my shower at 8:30 AM, food prep at 9:15 AM, my October meds delivered at 3 PM, I do have to say it has been a very lazy late morning and early afternoon. I did not even go up to see a neighbor with RS tonight. I was so lazy and tired. I just do not have a lot of energy lately but I do live my life as normal as I can. I also had some bowel issues today. I dislike those days. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I have to go get labs done for Madison in the morning and then evangelistic meeting at 7 PM. I am hanging in there since I found out my transplanted kidney is beginning to shut down from age, wear and tear after 28 1/2 years. I think that my knowledge of my transplanted kidney shutting down has become an overwhelming experience after all but I am hanging in there, going to appointments, going ahead to do what is necessary to find out if I can have a second transplant in the future. I have to, despite this journey I have taken this long and my feeling of being overwhelmed, God is control of my life and I will allow Him to do just that. Just some days, as sad as it may sound to some people, I prefer to be alone sometimes with the company of Bing Crosby the Cat or at least knowing he is nearby in the apartment somewhere. I prefer to be near my computer at all times when an attack comes my way that I consider the “writing bug” and thoughts need to be written down.
Okay, today was a very busy day for me. In fact i had postponed my ride to the clinic to get labs drawn for my doctor Dr. S. until Friday. I have been up since 6:30 AM because I have my parents coming at 9 AM. Yes, my parents from AR have been in Wisconsin all summer long now and were here for my birthday on the 3rd of July. Well…they came today for breakfast. They brought breakfast from Dunkin Donuts this morning. We had a nice visit most of the visit. I felt awkward though but what’s new with my parents from AR. They did notice that I have lost 21 pounds or at least they noticed I lost weight. I do love my parents even though they seem to be tough loving me all the time. I just do not like it when I am not being heard or considered a person stretching the truth a bit. I am no longer a child or a teenager. I am a grown woman who still feels she needs to rebel against her parents because of things being said that are reminders of my younger days. All in all it was a nice visit.
