Kidney Update

The kidney is holding its own at this time.  My creatinine for November 16, 2016 was 3.2 and for today, it was 2.9.  Dr. A is doing his best at prolonging the idea of putting me on dialysis at this time so he is hoping not to for a while yet.  I did gain some weight but it is the Christmas holiday but I did not gain too much.  I gained 3 lbs.  No big deal.  Winter is here now and it is colder.  Dr. A decided to put me on two medications.  I have two counts that are low so he wants to make sure I start feeling better.  Now I understand why my appetite has been non-existent at times.  It has something to do with a couple of blood counts he looks at on his patients.  Now most of patients do not urinate anymore and are on dialysis but when I had to leave I really had to go.  I planned to go to the bathroom and go back and make an appointment but I went to the bathroom and left the floor and made the appointment when I got home and began to wind down for the rest of the afternoon and evening with my TV and a good book.

Changing Things Up A Bit

No one is in trouble this morning.  At least none of my Dear Diary friends/readers, and Facebook friends/family is anyway.  As of today after taking a break from writing for a day, I am back for the time being for a little while.  I have decided to change things up a bit regarding my diary writing and journaling. Don’t worry it is still going to be public to my friends at www.deardiary.net and www.deardiary.org.  I am just going to be changing things up a bit.  New Year’s Eve is coming in fifteen days, and in sixteen days we will be in 2017.  My private life will remain private and that will not be shared online.  I know my health is in need of some repair right now but I do have to admit that I am not worried about that because of the fact I have some real awesome doctors in my corner helping me fight whatever is necessary to fight in regard to my health.  I am not fighting hard but taking it one step at time.

Things at Burbank Plaza have not really changed much yet in regard to my neighbor and her noisy, obnoxious boyfriend, but I do know that things are going to get better soon despite my feelings right now are still a little raw there.  My happiness is a little up and down right now because of what is going on with my neighbor.  Yes…my heart still aches about having to walk away from a friendship but I had to.  The attitude that is being portrayed in a way that does not make sense to me breaks my heart.  I know I have vented a lot about my neighbor lately but what is happening right now is still going on.  My neighbor acts like the rules do not pertain to her when everyone else in the building is following the rules that the property management has for this building.  I do not feel sorry for rule breakers if they get in trouble by upper management although I do not know if my neighbor has gotten into trouble or not.  I just know, me included, the onsite manager is getting sick and tired of this neighbor and her boyfriend as well.  I had to make another complaint against my neighbor yesterday.  UUGGHH!  So…knowing that things will get better is in the future, I am going to be happy again one day yet.

Yesterday was an okay day.  Same old routine/schedule of shower at 8:30 AM with RK as my shower gal, DB from IDS came to do some cooking at 9:15 AM to 10:30 AM, and the rest of the day was mine and Bing Crosby the cat’s day.  I did a lot of reading again.  I am halfway through the book now and will be finishing it in a day or two.  That is yet to be seen.  I do have a very busy weekend despite the cold winter weather we are now having in good ol’ Janesville, Wisconsin.  I surely do hope that I see a white Christmas this year not a slushy mess Christmas.  We are expecting more snow this weekend and I am going to church in the morning (Saturday) and then to a concert at the Beloit church in the evening, and then I will be going to a wedding Sunday afternoon in Beloit.  I do have a busy weekend so I am not sure if I will have time to do much journaling over the weekend.  I will have to wait and see because I always find time to get on the computer before I leave for church every Saturday morning or any morning during the week before my shower gal gets here that morning.

For the past two nights now I have been using an app on my phone to have white noise playing for me to fall asleep to.  I did sleep nine hours and twenty minutes.  It was quiet upstairs.  I think my neighbor’s boyfriend is not here right now.  That is not what I am worried about anyway.  I got an app and it helped me last night!  Woo hoo!
