Did I Mention...

That my social worker is an idiot? Yes, the same lady who screwed up Florida. She's an idiot. She called when we were already in Tennessee to tell me that I'm dialyzing on Friday instead of Saturday. No big deal except I'm going to skip 3 days instead of 2 days. I'm not sure how it feels yo skip 3 days. She told me to watch my fluid intake. Hope I feel okay on Monday.

Thanksgiving

It's been nice so far. Everyone's really excited to spend time with Anna. She was great in the car, too. She blew up about a half hour before we made it to the cabin. I probably would have, too, if I was strapped into a car seat for 6 hours.

The cabin is nice. Perfect size for the 13 of us. We had a great Thanksgiving dinner. It was all-you-can-eat served family style. There was turkey, prime rib, pork chops, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing. Alli loved the baked apples and kept saying it was the best meal she's ever had! I'm so glad.

Dialysis

I'm here now. We only got a little lost, but we made it on time. This unit is nice. I have a touch-screen tv. It's like one of those game systems on the end of a bar. I'm typing this on the tv while listening to 80's music on satellite radio. There are game that I plan on playing, too. The chairs are heated massage chairs. Amazing!

There are only three or four other people here. They are alot more normal than the people I usually run with. The nurses keep coming over because my blood pressure is running high. They're nice. I guess if I have to run then this is a nice place to do it.

I'm Thankful

So much has gone wrong lately, but I'm trying to think of all the things I'm thankful for. Here's a short list:
Jason, Alli and Anna
Mom, Dad and Brian
Anna's doctors and the Good Sam NICU
Kidney doctors, my OB, and the dialysis nurses
My co-workers and friends
and recently, Cap'n Crunch

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I think your social worker needs a brain transplant!
