So there isn’t much going on with my health lately, which is good. It’s nice to have a break from it all. Even though it’s still happening I can kind of pretend it’s not, right? Jan and I kind of have an exercise schedule. We go out walking together supposedly once a day. We went on Sunday and today. We are supposed to pair it with language learning. Maybe we will do that tonight. It is definitely nice to have a schedule. I think the fact that I’m symptom free lately is making me a little stir-crazy. I’m not tired all the time. I’m not pressed to go to the doctor every day. I have time to be bored. That feeling is so weird because for the last year I’ve been too sick to be bored. I guess it’s a good sign. Maybe everything that happens this week is a sign that it’s time to go back to work. (Cross your fingers it is at a new job closer to home).
I’m still being proactive about being put on the transplant list. I have a stress test coming up, some blood work, and even a colonoscopy in the near future but I’m just taking it all slowly, and one day at a time. I haven’t heard from SCRIPPS lately. Maybe I should call them.
I also need to call Jenna to start home-hemo training. I’m a little nervous to start this because I keep overbleeding at dialysis, when they take me off the machine. It was supposed to get better after they opened up my vein but I still bled a lot on Monday.. Maybe I am just a “bleeder” but that’s what makes me nervous. If a tech can’t stop the bleeding how am I supposed to stop it on my own, at home? Joel says that is what training is for. I suppose he’s right. I will call them tomorrow.
I tried arm knitting a blanket this afternoon. I got farther than this but took it apart. I didn’t have the right amount of yarn. You are supposed to use 3 different skeins at 1 time. I was only using 1. I just wanted to see if it would come out good but I couldn’t really tell from what I did. I guess I’ll have to try it. I’m fascinated with knitting and making things with yarn. I don’t know if it’s because my grandma was into crochet or what? I wasn’t really into it while she was alive because I could/should have asked her how to do it. But now I have these phases where I want to knit or crochet, and try new projects. I’m going to try this blanket thing again when I get more yarn.
What else? It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. I’ve been following a bunch of different blogs lately, even looking at instagram. The blogs that I enjoy right now are: designlovefest.com, ohjoyblogs.com, and navywifechronicles.wordpress.com. I also follow a bunch in my tumblr dashboard but those I check on a daily basis, and I even have them saved on my phone. The navywifechronicles one is my Aunt’s. It’s fun to read up on her life there. Oh on instagram I just started following #popsicleproject and kiagregory.
It’s pretty neat to see what people put on social media. I think its an amazing outlet for people to express themselves. It’s also inspiring to those who come across it. I was inspired by my sister, a fellow blogger, to start this blog. Now it has become a type of therapy for me. I can ramble about anything. All this rambling helps me to clear my mind.
