"My kidneys?" I asked disbelievingly. It turns out that my kidneys aren't functioning properly. So now I have an appointment back with my regular doctor's office to get to the root of my kidney and iron problem. I can't believe that no one told me about my kidney problem! Could it have something to do with my iron deficiency? Then he ordered a thyroid test and an echo cardiogram to be done...
I hope I'm not falling apart.
Last night I still went to my Joint 201 class held at the hospital where I am getting surgery. The nurse answered a lot of questions and we were able to see our future rooms. One lady was having surgery tomorrow..which is today....which surprises me because they said their unit was closed until after the holiday. I guess the doctors need a vacation/holiday too.
After our class my daughter took me shopping at The Christmas Tree Shop. Have you been to one? I didn't even want to go in because by this time I was tired. I thought it only had Christmas things and wasn't in the mood for that. Instead....it had a lot of neat things. I got a fish that lights up, a personal chip-n-dip plate, and two Chinese lanterns. (I didn't even see one Christmas item.) My daughter treated me so it was cost free.
Here is a picture of my treats....
I will be putting the fish and lanterns on my balcony (probably after surgery). The chip plate I might use tonight!
If I don't make it on tomorrow I wish everyone a happy 4th of July!!
