It was a very strange day indeed. My doctors are all crazy and I think I need to be my own doctor. I went to Dr. K, my kidney surgeon, Wednesday. He was mad at the kidney specialist, put me on another antibiotic to keep kidney infections down (specialist took me off my original ones and said I didn't need them), and is sending me for an ultrasound of the kidneys to prove to the kidney specialist that the blockage is gone. He had the report from the specialist with all the information he argued with me about, which infuriated Dr. K. My regular doctor called me today to tell me I have a kidney infection and they were putting me on an antibiotic for it. I told them Dr. K (surgeon) just put me back on a maintenance dosage yesterday. When I asked if I needed both, they said no. Ok so I thought I was good to go because I was to pick up my antibiotics after 6 pm this evening. After McKenzie was done dancing, I went to GS's soccer game. When I got home, I had a message from the drug store that they didn't have my medication in and they wanted to talk to me about it before they ordered it. I will have to call them in the morning to see what the problem is. Probably a $300 or $400 prescription...guess I will know tomorrow. Still eating healthy and drinking all my water and getting all my exercises in.
It has been a long week. Can't wait to see what Friday will bring.
God who helps me when I struggle and is always there for me

After spending the morning praising God and eating a light lunch, I got ready to go to the 6-8 year old soccer games...two of them today. Then I sat down in my recliner with the Sunday paper as I had some time to spare. I fell asleep, didn't get the paper read , missed the first soccer game and was late to the second one...
I took my blood pressure just before going out the door and it was a little high~ 174/110...and a little scary. I took my bp pill on my way out the door to the game. Just got back and it is still a bit high~188/80 high, but better. And to think for the last three days, I was getting better readings. I am just wondering if jalapeno peppers would raise bp? I only ate a little over half a cup of them. I googled them and found that they are used to lower bp and so is garlic. Imagine that! But maybe they are packed with a lot of sodium in the jar as they were not fresh jalapenos.
Now I am just a bit tired and will kick back in my recliner with my feet up and do a little "sparkin".
Thank you for reading my blogs and for your support and encouragement!!! Blessings and hugs to all,

I had a very busy couple of weeks as usual so I am sure you are not surprised by that major announcement. lol I didn't get to post these pictures earlier but we have been busy, busy, busy. We did everything from watching our varsity soccer team practice, getting ready for a scrimmage,
it doesn't hurt that my dear grandson is a player or that McKenzie is sooo in love with him that she will marry him when she is older...that is if he isn't too old (her words, not mine), getting their pictures taken
to riding McKenzie's 4-wheeler
It just seems like the days are speeding along so fast I can't keep up. But on the flip side, this week will be very different. After having McKenzie daily all summer, tomorrow will be her first day of First Grade. She is so excited, she was in bed and asleep by 7:30, has her clothes all set out for tomorrow and her book bag packed and ready to go. Watch out First Grade, McKenzie is on her way!!!
I'm not sure what I will be doing every day until it's time for me to get her, get homework done and head off to the activity of the day. Maybe I can get in some extra walking...or heaven help me...wash my mouth out with soap...this is a hard one for me...clean my house and finish that decluttering. lol
The first grade teachers do not want parents in the classroom from what I have been told so I may work a little in the kindergarten rooms and finish the math games. Maybe it is time I do things just for me...September is a bit crazy as I do have quite a few doctors appointments and looking for an endocrinologist...may keep me busy for a little while.
Blessings and hugs,
God and great worship services
My wonderful family including McKenzie and her family
The joys of watching McKenzie grow up and seeing the world through her eyes
