Afternoon Thoughts

Call me forgetful if you like.  I had sent a text to my mother asking her if she remembered what tomorrow, October 2nd, is and she told me “yes”.  Then she came back asking me a question what today was?  I told her that she had me stumped and I asked for a clue.  She did not give me a clue and told me this was the day Grandma Fox passed away.  I did not remember right away until she told me.  That is where anyone can call me forgetful today.  After she mentioned grandma dying, I remember the time Grandma had passed – around 1 AM.  I feel so foolish forgetting Grandma’s death but I know I should not feel foolish; I always remember occasions – good or not good – all the time. My memory just would not pull up this day right away until my mom told me.  I feel real embarrassed.  I CAN NOT believe that I FORGOT.  Sorry Grandma.

Today my shower gal came but I did not have a shower or a sponge bath today.  I decided too take it easy all day long without doing anything.  I have not attended church this morning and will not be going tomorrow either.  I have not been feeling very good this past week.  Honestly, I surely feel fine to some extent but I surely … feeling lazy today.

Morning Thoughts

Here I am again wondering where September 2016 went.  It went by so quickly and now October just might do the same with how my schedule is this month with appointments regarding my transplanted kidney that is having issues after 28 years and 18 days…28 1/2 plus years.  I went to the clinic yesterday to get labs done for my Madison Dr. Singh after a med change and the results were a little unexpected because my WBC is up to 16 and I have diarrhea right now and have had it for the past two to three days now from today.  I had checked my temperature while on the phone with my kidney coordinator yesterday and it was 99.0.  Nothing to worry about.  I am to keep an eye on my temperature to make sure it does not go past 100.5 and since yesterday afternoon my temperature was 97.7 and this morning it was 98.7…normal.  When I get sick, my temperature does go up.  I did take one Tylenol arthritis yesterday afternoon after talking to my kidney coordinator who called me with the test results.

MorningWith it being Sabbath right now I have decided not to go to church today or tomorrow…this weekend I am staying put.  JC is coming with a bulletin and worksheet from today’s (morning) evangelistic meeting after church.  I did want to go but I just thought it better to stay home despite my feelings about going to church is very important.  I have decided not going to church Friday afternoon and evening after getting home from Friday night’s evangelistic meeting at the Janesville church at 7 PM.  Yes, I feel naked about not going to church and it does bother me but my health has to be put first this weekend.  I do feel awkward not being dressed for church and getting everything ready to go by now at 8:55 AM to head out the door and wait for my ride.  It’s just odd.

I have a few appointments this month.  On October 4, 11, 18, I have iron infusions, October 7  have a med check with my nurse prescriber at Genesis Counseling Services, have an appointment on Friday, October 21, to meet and greet my new Nephrologist in Janesville regarding being on dialysis for the near future, and on October 31, I have my second biopsy scheduled that day and will be gone all morning and most of the afternoon until 4 PM or so.  A busy month!
