Update for the last 2 weeks.
I took a few days to get over my Adelaide trip and all the dramas that happened in Family Court. Now I have been spending a lot of time with the kids as Jason has shifted into his own rental property. So now I get to baby sit as Jason has a small part-time job. I am willing to do this as I think Jason also needs a bit of freedom.
I had to go back down Adelaide last Wednesday to see the Nephrologist. Rained all day, shouldn't complain as this is the first time it has rained since last July so we really did need the rain. But it made the driving so much harder, I am so glad that I took my father down with me as he had to drive home.
The first appointment was for a iron infusion then I saw the Nephrologist. Even though my blood test were not as good as there should have been, I had told him that I had been stressed, he wasn't over concerned. He has cut down on tablet from every day to twice a week. Hoping that will improve the creatinine levels.
So now I have to look after myself again, I have improved these levels before. A lot less stress now so I hope this helps.
I was very tired on Thursday but as I had 3 birthday in a row, including my mothers, on the 1st, Brodie's (grandson) on the 2nd and my Dad's on the 3rd, I still decided to do some cooking starting on Thursday, then on Friday I made little quiches. Also managed to do shopping for things for the party of my grandson in these days.
Had morning tea over my Mother's then took the kids back in the afternoon for a little party for my Mum. Brodie's party was Saturday, then I looked after the kids that night. Then I had my son and his girlfriend visit me yesterday for a few hours then I went over to see Dad for his birthday.
On the food front I did very well, I did not overeat at all. In fact on Saturday I ended up making a cold meat and salad platter and that is all I ate that day, no cake. In total over the birthday parties, I ate one small quiche and one party size sausage roll and one small piece of cake, (Cake was from Mum's morning tea).
I was also invited out for dinner Saturday night for Mum and Dad's birthday with my brother and his wife, I refused because I had already celebrated with Mum. I did not feel as though I wanted to eat something big for a meal. Matter of fact I had a plum and a pear for my dinner.
No wonder i feel tired and worn out. But I managed to keep going and achieved all of this. So much better than a few years ago as I would not even attempted to do anything like this.
I do hope a get a quiet week this week. Although already I have a exercise class this afternoon, look after the kids on Wednesday and Friday afternoon, also I have exercises on Thursday. So that is 4 days already taken care of so I don't like my chances of a quiet week LOL. Oh Well, such is life.
Have to make a appointment with doctor to get the results on my toe to see if that is healed. I had a xray over a week ago so need to find out. Might have to be next week LOL. I am going to strap my toes up and see if I can wear shoes to exercises as I have not been able to wear closed in shoes since I fractured my little toe.
So that is a snapshot of my life at the moment. Busy, busy, busy.
