25 years

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted. It's actually a good thing. The anemia finally got better and life just got really busy. Life is zooming by. Garth and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on the 25th by going to Hawaii. It was super dooper fun. We stayed at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore side of Oahu. Every day was filled with wonderful memories. My dialysis was in the late afternoon so I was able to enjoy wonderful activities every day. (snorkeling, swimming, relaxing in the sun, site-seeing for places they film Lost). I think it was the first vacation in years that I didn't have to have a down day to recover. Such a blessing. I just hope the next 25 years are just as wonderful. Garth is the best husband a girl could have. He's my best friend.

Life is Complicated

Life is complicated sometimes. Just as my health was getting better, the boys are having problems. Trouble eating and then other one--trouble at school. Now they are doing better and my health is doing worse. Anemia has set in again. My hemoglobin levels are getting low. My meds have been adjusted so hopefully I will not need a transfusion. I'm too busy to be tired. We get our new floors tomorrow. Can't wait. The house is almost finished. I was hoping by my birthday but it looks like we won't make it. My birthday is in just a few days. Maybe by Valentine's day? Wouldn't that be nice. Life goes on.
