Glad To Be Back

It was nice to get out of town. Stressful, but at least I got to go on a little vacation. Saturday afternoon was the best. Jason, Alli, Anna and I got to go down the mountain by ourselves to have lunch and do the touristy stuff. We bought the girls each a magnet and Alli got a piece of rock candy. She was a mess...but she had a great time.

Missed an Extra Day

Since I have a social worker who can't do her job correctly I had three days off dialysis. Normally the most I skip is two days over a weekend. I was afraid that I would feel terrible by today. But I'm okay. It's hard to explain, but I don't feel refreshed and amazing, but I'm not sure I ever do! I'm tired and a little worn down, but not terrible or sick.

Back to My Arm

I was running on my catheter for two weeks. Now I'm back on my arm. The nurse numbed me first, but I think she stuck me wrong cause one of the needles hurt like hell going in. I'm glad I was on my catheter in Gatlinburg. The don't offer numbing at that unit. Yowzers!

Good News!

I got a call from Christ Hospital yesterday. They need me to come in for another blood draw for a donor match. It seems that one of my potential donors has stepped up and is moving along with the process. This is the test that has to be done within 24 hours of the other person's test. They are only there until 3:30, so it'll be tough not to miss school. But I'm sure I'll be able to find someone to cover my last class so I can leave a bit early. I'm waiting for a return call to set up the appointment. Yeah!
