News and Views...

Well, I know it's been awhile again..
I have been so busy lately. I am happily doing the 'grandma thing' and am crocheting hexagon blankets for my precious little people. They are a lot of work, I must say, but worth the effort. They are looking good.
Also, for Christmas I received a Kindle. OMG...I'm in love. I have not been able to read a book for about 2 years because of my eyesight and now I can read again. Believe it or not, I'm reading War and Peace. Boy, what a good book. I love my Kindle.
Have not been feeling very energetic lately and just feel blah in general. I was not able to get a family doctor in this area until last month finally. So on Monday I went for my blood test as I have a full physical scheduled for next Monday. However, my Dr. phoned me tonight with the results of my blood and urine tests and he wasn't a happy camper. Apparently, my kidneys are failing. He wanted me to go right to the hospital and get admitted but I talked him out of it. But NIA hubby is insisting I go in tomorrow. Old poop! But I don't wanna.....sigh.
Apparently I'm in pretty bad shape...snort....who knew?? Actually, I really suspected something was wrong with my kidney functions but I figured as long as I was peeing, what could be wrong? I thought if my kidneys failed, I would stop peeing and then I'd go into the hospital. But the Dr. says I'm not peeing the right stuff and I am full of toxins. I wonder what would happen if I spit on someone??? Kidney cooties I suppose....
Guess who's taking their Kindle to the hospital??
So, I'll keep you posted as soon as I get back. Please send prayers and kind thoughts my way...I may need them.
I will put up some pics of the new animals we have now.
Take care,

I will be saying a special prayer for you...I am going through the same thing...not quite kidney failure but feet and ankles the size of tree stumps...the docs say it is medication related and the diabetis crap...I have to see what the Oncologist say at Sunnybrook to be sure it ain't the cancer back to haunt me agaim...
I wish you all the best...

Tory, Sorry to hear about your health
problems.Thoughts, prayer, hugs, fond wishes.

I will probably be the last kid on the block to get a Kindle--I like the look and feel of books--but my brother-in-law loves Kindle and nearly sold me on getting one when he told me that you can just click on an unfamiliar word and up pops the meaning.

Dearest Margie...I hope and pray all is well with you. Thank you for your prayers as well. Keep me posted.
Love and kisses,
Thank you Cheryl and Forsythia. I really appreciate your well wishes.
Forsythia, I know what you mean about the feel of a book and I miss that, but, you are right about the instant dictionary feature on the Kindle. You'd be surprised at how much I use it! It's wonderful.
Take care all.
Tory
