First off, I'd like to say I'm hopped up on painkillers. Lots of them. And I decided now would be a great time to catch you all up on the week past.
Isn't it the best time, when you"re out of your cotton-pickin' mind with drugs?
Yeah, I thought so, too.
So, here we go!
I spent Memorial Day weekend in the hospital, where we tried to get my dialysis prescription right. It ended up to where I am now dialyzing 24 hours a day - 12 on the cycler at night, then I'm "wet" all day. This means I will do more exchanges of dialysis fluid throughout the day.
It seems to be working, although we ran a new PET test (don't ask me hat it stands for) to determine how often have to do an exchange. I look at it as anything to keep me off hemo is a good thing.
It's alot of rearranging of things around here, but we are managing.
Kati started a new business, creating custom clothing. Her "signature" is this beautiful ribbon weave that she incorporates into each piece. Her dream is design school, and this is letting her get her feet wet. She conceived of this idea months ago, and spent alot of time looking to see if there was anything else out there like it, and there wasn't.
She is starting out on Etsy, with information on several social Media sites. She is also starting a blog, and is really excited about everything.
Wince her "thing" is design, and not numbers, I've been hired as Chief Marketing Officer and CFO of the Evelyn Baxter Design company. Isn't that a great name? She has done everything to protect that name, and plans to carry it forward as her career progresses.
You can view her work at Evelyn Baxter Designs. (Please note the llink PMS issuesare resolved and should be working now)
To her credit, she made her first sale on her first day for well over $200.00. It blew her away, and made us extremely proud to see her accomplish her dream!
She would like to do a giveaway contest for one of her pieces, so keep an eye out for more details!
To wrap up our week, I went to go let the dog out this morning. She darted in front of me and I fell. Not to get too graphic, but I created a lateral break (from left to right) across the base of the nail bed of my big toe. It broke so severely that is cut through the skin, about severing the top of my toe off.
So they removed the nail (after several beautifully strong doses of Lidocaine, hello I love you), put in 8 stitches and put the nail back on. Weird, but they said it promotes healing.
We were actually in and out of the ER in 2 hours flat. With really great care.
Other than that, things have been really boring around here.
What's up and new and exciting in your lives?
