Actually the news is from Friday. My baby brother finally got a kidney transplant!!!! Whoo Hoo!!! This is me and Rob. He’s been on dialysis for more than five years, and from experience, I know that dialysis is actually hell. It’s hard on patients and makes you tired, miserable, and yes, I know it’s life …
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I think God is really trying to get my attention, possibly because I haven’t been paying attention before! Well, I feel like this is happening a lot lately and I’ve started looking around to see what He’s trying to get me to change. Because, ultimately, He wouldn’t be …
Good morning, cyber world. I know I haven’t spent as much time with this blog as I should, and I will start again and try to not neglect you again. Can’t promise anything. After I’m only human. A lot has been going on in my part of the world. In fact, however, my part of …
Yes, I did mean to blog every day but after two days there wasn’t much to say beyond, here it is, Day three, same ole same ole. We had some personal stuff go on in the family. The Girl came home from college for the weekend. It’s not actually a SUPER big deal as she’s …
Interestingly enough I felt better this morning when I got up. Spent a lot of last night trying to come up with a title for an inspirational romantic suspense about an ex-black ops guy who wants to put his past behind him and settle down in a small town but can’t because someone blames him …
Well, I saw the endocrinologist yesterday, and yes, we’re going to do the radioactive iodine treatment in four weeks. Starting today, I stop taking the thyroid hormone which means eventually I’m going to feel terrible, but we need to make sure the thyroid cells that are left are as receptive to the iodine as they …
Yesterday I saw the surgeon who took my thyroid out. I saw him the day after the surgery and he told me that everything looked good; there had been no sign of cancer. This was a non-issue to me. I’d had nodules on my thyroid for about 15 years so the idea of cancer seemed …
  Today I get a CAT scan done of my lungs. I’m not incredibly worried anymore, like I was when I first got the phone call telling me I needed to do this. I’m just a little stressed because the scan is scheduled for 1:30 and my daughter has a bowling match this afternoon and …
In one week, I’ll be 49 years old. Sometimes…no, make that all the time, that sounds older than I ever thought I’d get. Do you remember those Disney World ads where the teacher asks the kids if they can figure out how old they’ll be in 2000? “You’ll be about my age,” she says, and …
Yes, it’s been over a month since I posted anything here. I can’t believe I let it go so long. How many blogs that you read say that now and then? Where I have been since 21 Dec? Well, we had Christmas, of course, which was nice. I got a lovely bread machine from my …
