Hey y'all, I know it's been a while since I blogged.....
I've pretty much been taking it easy....
There's been a few incidents regarding my kidney, I reached my one year "transplant-versary" on June 24th, Yay!
I had bloodwork done as usual at my appointment, and the doctor noticed protein in my urine, which isn't necessarily a good thing, but can be harmful in the long run, so he requested a biopsy to check whether it's the kidney function or my medication causing the problem. Well, it's not the kidney, so we're working on reducing the medication to see if that solves the problem.
Then the following labwork showed a small spike in antibodies in my blood. Which basically means my body is prepping up for an "attack" on the foreign kidney. An early precursor to rejection. So I had to go down to the hospital and get an 8 hour ivig transfusion. Standard procedure the doctor assures us. I go in next Friday for a second one.
The other thing I've been doing is a Netflix binge with Dani. 10 seasons of "Supernatural" in 4 weeks!! We laughed, cried, cheered, rolled our eyes, and made snarky comments at the TV screen every day. Now we can't wait for Season 11 on Netflix & Season 12 on CW. Of course it airs the same time as another show Randy & I watch, but that's what the DVR is for.
Another thing that happened recently is that I'm now formally employed as an "ASL Expert" for SignOn C.P.R.. An online company where people can practice sign language from the comfort of their own home. This is my first "salaried" job since 2005!! I'll continue to look for another part-time or full-time job as well, but being in a small rural town with no reliable transportation is tricky. Hoping another online job would come by. If y'all want, check out my resume.
Now that the summer is half over and kids go back to school mid-August, it's time to dust off the laptop and start working again!
Have a great summer!!
