Life & Helping Others

Well, plans have changed again and we are not going anywhere for my B-Day yet.  My choice.  I think I want to be healed so badly; I’m pushing it and taking a trip would be a bad idea.  I really need to be taking my baths and sitting on my pillows plus, the thought of using public restrooms all day is not appealing.  After I heal fully, we can do something..maybe even something different..like Disneyland!  We live close but don’t go much and thye have a new land now.

In other news, I got a surprise phone call the day before yesterday from an imaging center that my Nephrologist had wanted me to have an Abdominal x-ray.  But, I scheduled that and had it done yesterday.  That was annoying.  My whole day was thown off because I could not eat anything before and the appointment although scheduled at 11, did not happen until 12 or after so it screwed up my food and my medicine times and I developed a killer Migraine headache and had to take a Maxalt last night.

I  did get some more wrapping done.  Two more things to wrap.

Plus, I found this really, cool, website called www.Aidpage.com. where people write in what they want be it money or cards or material items and others offer to fulfill those needs.  You use passwords and user names so as to be anonymous but it is an awesome way to help poople.  I am waiting to hear from one person to take me up on my offer.  In this way, I know I am helping someone who really needs it.

Life’s Happenings

I am so tired today.  I tried to start my 50 grams of Protein yesterday but that didn’t even come close.  I developed a horrible Migraine Headache with nausea plus I was up all night in the restroom.  To much milk and cheese, I think.  So, excited about eating cheese again I went a bit overboard and I am Lactose Intolerant.  Even with Lactaid, I have issues.  I hope it is just the type of protein that is causing me problems and this won’t become constant because of the amount.  I don’t need constant/excessive headaches again.  They were really starting to even out.

I got a call from a Surgeon’s office yesterday saying that my referral was approved.  However, I don’t drive freeways and the office was to far away in location. so I called the insurance company and had it changed to another Surgeon who is closer to home.  I need to call today to confirm the change has been made.  I can hardly believe they actually put a rush on something!

My poor husband is going crazy at work as they heap more and more work on him but the good news is: he just got another bonus which means he already received two bonuses this year alone.  I said “Good. because another large bill is on the way.”  Yep, just the way the cycle goes round.

Different Updates

The weather has changed to semi-cool and rainy.  Actually, it’s warm and rainy which is odd for here but it is causing me migraine headaches.

I saw my new Nephrologist yesterday and he seems okay.  He actually spent more time with me in the first visit then my old Nephrologist did in every visit I went to in the time I saw him  from 2005.  I mean individual visit..not combined.

I called to make an appointment with the specialist for the skin tags however, they wrote anal fissure on the authorization and since I have skin tags there too, the doctor won’t look at the skin tags (which is what needs to be removed) unless it is specifically written on the referral.  It’s alway’s something!  So, I need to get a new referral before I see the specialist.

We have 5 houses including us participating in the yard sales next wknd so I am going to take the permits to the city today.  3 more and it would have been half the street.  On well, it’s still multi-family.

Writing & Decorating Accomplishments

I’ve had two Migraines in two days which doesn’t surprise me.  The first was more due to mental, I think and sort of expected.  I wrote over 10 pages of my book.  Actually, I copied over 10 pages from my old diary.  Interesting memories, for sure.  Then, I came home to my beautiful floors and a big, mess.  Between all the dust and the smell of varnish or whatever..it’s no wonder I was down last night.  Anyway, onto more sweeping, mopping, organizing today but our family is back together.

I guess I need to elaborate.  We stayed at Motel 6 while we had our Wood Floors re-surfaced.  They look beautiful.  Sunday, I took almost the entire day to write while at he motel.  Monday, I returned home to the dust and smell of varnish, etc.  Today, will be the continuation of cleaning and organizing.  Sunday night, my husband came home with the dog and I got to stay alone in the motel which was really nice.  Sort of like my own mini (real mini) vacation.  Our Wood Floors look beautiful and the noise really isn’t as bad as expected.  We don’t even hear the cat walking around as long as we keep her claws clipped.  As for the dog..well..he’s a dog, what can you do?

My hubby took me to Claim Jumper where they have a GF-Menu.  Yummy.  It was so full of options, I had a hard time deciding.  I felt like a normal person while ordering there.  That’s the way to go out to eat.
