The last couple of days have gone a little better. Im still getting iv fluids around the clock, but I could be set free to go for walks, so it was nice to do that over the weekend. My legs felt really rubbery at first! Today Michael & Lindsay (niece) brought me Macaroni Grill food and then we went for a walk outside...it was such a nice day and SOOO good to be in fresh air! I went for a walk this evening too...it's just harder to walk around the hospital because I have to wear a mask, making it more difficult to breathe. When I'm outside, I don't need one...so much better! Awhile ago, I had a dog visit...it was an enormous goldendoodle named Mickey...it made me miss my tiny Mickey and Meg.
A nice bit of good news is that my creatinine level has come down a little, which means my kidneys are now functioning more like 50% instead of 40. My doctors were happy...they didn't think it would get any better while I was on Ivs, they werent sure it would EVER get any better. So this is huge!
The awful sinus headaches and nausea are gone (PTL! ) and I'm eating again.
My pfts were really down on Friday...I've tried not to stress over it. I will do it again tomorrow afternoon...so if you want something to specifically pray about, that would be it! Even if it would go up a couple of points. My numbers have gone down pretty much every time I've done pfts since the beginning of Jan. I'm way overdue for some better numbers!
I have been taking some pictures, but don't have a camera cord for my iPad. Kayden and Perrin were here a couple of times this weekend and enjoyed the doctor kit...Kayden kept taking my temp and giving me shots. And they jumped up and down when I gave them the Thomas the train fold out set...it's so cute. They had great fun with it!
Conversation by Steph and Kayden on the way here Sunday..
Kayden-"we're going to see grandma, maybe she will have a surprise for us"
Steph-"she doesn't have a surprise for you every time"
Kayden-"oh, but grandma is full of surprises!"
I would LOVE to be surprised with some better pfts tomorrow!
