Jen, So glad you are home safe and sound. It is so hard sometimes when we travel and are at some one elses home to eat properly.
I want to say that Friday i was gone just about all day. went to drug store , picked up meds. then ate lunch at Red Lobster. Went to Dollar General Store, for items that are much cheaper than other stores. Then went to WalMart, i do not like Wal Mart but they have lots of things less expensive than other grocery stores . So i was on my feet for a very long time. By the time i got home feet were swollen ankles and legs. I was totaled out. So all i have done is rest. mostly. I am feeling better now. I think i will fix dinner soon.
I think the heat was a big part of the swelling. But i am better now.
Take care every one. emoticon emoticon I felt like this. and i waddled when i walked.

Caroline emoticon

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

emoticon all!
I am happy to be back home. The wedding was beautiful! But, what is a wedding without family drama? Too much for me - please keep me in your prayers. I need God's peace right now.
I am doing the best that I can to LOVE my kidneys! Being away from home and traveling wrecked havoc on my health. I drank as much water as I could and ate as healthy as I could before we got to our destination where I could buy healthy food and water to keep on hand.

We had a wonderful time with my son and our new daughter.
We hit 3 beaches in California and went to Disney one day.
So happy to be home.
Missed you all very much!
Pics soon!
Jean

Hi every one, Tomorrow is a big day for me, my Birthday, i am a Leo and Fiery, also i see my Nephrologist, i dont know why but i am really worried. My daughter and step daughter's birthdays are both on the 27th.
People think we are crazy but we love Veg. Soup all year long. I made a huge pot so i could freeze some. I had all organic and fresh Veggies in it.
I did some more research on the web today about CKD, after i get through with the DR. i will post some things. Our weather here was nice and muggy, ukk. We have been blessed in East Tn. to have rain and the crops are doing good here. And we have to mow our lawn every week. With the drought i know grocerie's will go up. They said milk is already going up in price. I guess i will have to buy a cow, my son drinks lots of milk.
Claire if i had your goats here they would have plenty to eat, and my yard would look nice too.I hope every one is good. Take care, and Love Yourself as well as your Kidneys.
Caroline

Had to look up the news from Aurora as I hadn't heard about the shootings before reading your entry. So so sad. Mental illness shows itself in so many different ways and this man certainly has a few screws lose. My thoughts to all effected.

I'm still in Michigan and it has rained here in the last few days as well. Sunday we may get more thunderstorms. I'm so glad - we had started watering the pasture because the goats had nothing to graze. The unusually warm March caused all the crops to start budding early - when the frost returned it killed off most of the asparagus crops (only California and Washington produce more asparagus than Michigan.). The frost also killed the fruit tree buds - the apple crops have been ravaged. Now with the drought, the corn crops failed to pollinate. The rivers are too low to float canoes which is a big recreational draw to upper Michigan. The entire US bread basket is in dire straits.

I'm really upbeat today, aren't I?!!!

Took the grandkids (9 and 11) to the Baby Food Festival today and had a great time. (Gerber Foods is/was Founded in this area and still has a big presence.). Thee were rides and booths of jewelry, handwork, etc. and, of course, baby crawls and baby beauty contests and drawings for baby foods prizes. We wore their butts out and they fell into bed with happy faces.

Hi every one, Aria,,glad to hear from you.My Neph. is the one who put me on Vitamin D. Dr. are all different. I go see my Neph. on the 25--this coming Wed. my BD, i hope its a good present.
Today
it has been sunny and high 88, still humid. Cleaned my porch again. I guess we use it so much, i need to sweep it every day, and then clean good at least once a week.
I hope every one is in good Spirits.
Let us all take time to pray for the community of Auroa, Colorado, I am amazed at how some people can do such a horrible thing. Take care every one.

Hey all :) I have been delinquent due to only having access to Spark on my Android/Cellphone. I am glad I have at least that, but it is hard to post a lot on it, and often the phone eats the posts.

Anyhow, I had an appt with my Nephro in June and she confirmed I do have a cyst on my Right (only) Kidney. But other than the one cyst it looks healthy, and is working on a "Normal" level. She is leaving it to my PCP to check my Vit D levels over the next the next year, and says I need to see her in a year, unless I have issues again -- Since I have a History with Hydronephrosis, she does want to see me if it happens again, or I see signs of issues.

Hope you all have a great week!

Hi every one i hope you had a good week-end. We had rain and a few thunder showers Friday evening.Sat. i cleaned house, we washed the porch again. Scott started mowing the lawn you could tell it was going to rain, he had the front done just as it started raining, which was good, then it stopped and he finished the sides and the back and then it came pouring down and we were so glad, it rained all evening. It was nice to set in the rocking chairs and have coffee and see and listen to the rain. Lexy laid between our 2 chairs and snoozed. Jerry went to the lake to fish.
We had fish, salad and baked pot earlier for dinner. so good. Lots of ice tea to drink all day.
I need to hear how every one is doing, let me know what you are up to these summer days.

Hello all i did not get to the Neph yesterday, it was cancelled until July 25 My BD. Oh great. Maybe this is good for i was so stressed maybe this way i can calm down.
We have had rain here all week which is good, we sure needed it. Every thing looks greener.
I havent done to much today slept off and on, i dont know if its the weather or i needed it, the latter I'm sure since i dont sleep well at night.
Lexy likes the rain, so off we go. Is a nice warm gentle rain so i dont mind at all. I hope every one is doing ok and can get there exercise in. Take care, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks Jean, i am not looking forward to going to Neph. tomorrow. But i know i must go and get my news.
California here i come. I have been to SanFrancisco, and Oakland. Beautiful there,
How do you like your Kindle Fire, i have been thinking about getting one. My grandson who is a computer expert says they are nice. But he has the Apple in every thing, i told him he could afford Apple i cant, and then he said well the Kindle Fire is a good one.
Have a nice day tomorrow.

Love the new Yippy Skippys as Claire says. Friday I finally pulled myself out of the house and had my Blood Work done for the 10th July which is Tuesday. I am afraid i will have some NOT very good news, STRESS can do a job on you. I hope i am wrong, but i have been feeling so weak and tired, could be the Fibro also.
It was so hot today after blood work, went to Panera Bread and got there wonderful white bread , no Phos. in it. 2 loaves 1 to freeze. Then took Lexy to Pet store, got her dog food, dry and can and treats, 70.00 some dollars, she will be set for awhile.
Scott drove, so Lexy wouldnt be in car, he took her for a little walk while i was getting blood work. We always carry water and food for her, and usually get her a piece of Fish at Long John Silvers. Hopeing i can get some work done tomorrow. emoticon emoticon
