Now, after church: potluck, prayer meeting, and poem reading, I am now back home for the rest of the day and Sabbath. Before coming straight home I visited a neighbor for a while and then came home to a Bing Crosby the cat waiting patiently for me to enter the apartment as he always does every time I go out and come back. Honestly, his hearing is that good for a good ol’ cat of 11 years old. Am I ever worried about leaving him? No, when it comes to coming back some time later in the same day. Yes, when I am going to be gone overnight somewhere for some reason or another that is not in my control but that is when I find the best person to care for him while I am away more than a day or overnight.
My shower gal MP will be here in a little bit and I am going to have a shower today – this Saturday – but I will not have to wash my hair today. It is going to be an in and out shower for me though. I have to get prepared for Monday’s biopsy procedure on my kidney so why bother washing my hair today? It has been in a braid since yesterday morning to the side. Anyway, it is nice to be home where it is quiet and peaceful except for RS making her normal live in noises above me – normal and I am not complaining. I do not have my TV on right now. A good time to be quiet until MP leaves at 5 PM. I am going to take advantage of the quietness after she is gone.
Okay, I have no idea what I am going to do the rest of the weekend after church and shower today. I have been so busy with other things that I have had no time to write or the want to write in my diary this month. My life is still going around and around in a circle so that is not the problem. I just have been very busy is all. The idea of more appointments ahead is looming for the betterment of my health so that is all good to go despite that being in and out is driving me a little bit crazy right now. I am going with the flow despite my thoughts and feelings about all that is going on. I am very happy to be alive with wonderful doctors everywhere I go to get medical attention. My main concern is my transplanted kidney and yes, I know I have been talking about that a lot lately. Sorry, it has been on my mind lately. I want to continue with my doctor appointments and see about another transplant in my future but I am doing EVERYTHING the doctors want me to do in the meantime and I am doing great despite my feelings and thoughts about it all inside my head not saying anything that shows fear or distress. I am a big girl now, an adult, and not scared like I was years ago when I needed my first kidney transplant. Nervous and little anxious is more like it with going with the flow. I am still loving life with God involved in all my plans in place one step at a time. Yes, one step at a time and staying updated with doctors and nurses, family, and friends about what is going on in my life right now.
I do have to admit that I am worried about a dear friend of mine in the process but then again my friend is a big girl as well. She needs to live her life the way she sees fit in hopes she does not get in trouble living at Burbank Plaza Apartments in the process. I just do not want her to get hurt. Me, no boyfriend in the future for me at the moment. It is not a time issue and it is not a need right now.
