I loved yesterday, it was the best day in a long time!

There are many reasons why I said that and I'll tell you some of them: * We had the closing on our land in the morning, so a big huge boulder has been lifted from my shoulders! * I had a doc appointment with the kidney specialist in the early afternoon and he was very happy that my kidney function number has risen from 42 to 55. It's still low, but at least it is going up instead of down. * He agreed I can go from visiting him every six months to once a year. * We had lunch at our favorite place in Cleveland, City Cafe, where they give you too much food. * Brought home half of our lunch and had it for dinner along with a bowl of homemade lima bean soup. No muss, no fuss! * I slept pretty good, first time in a while! Photo is mine, I should have taken it before my husband dove into his food!

Good morning Abby Are you moving. I have been gone for some months now just had to refresh. I hope all is going well with you. Things are wonderful on my end.

I was wondering where you were! No, not moving, it was land, 20 acres, that we have been trying to sell for a long time! Were you having fun traveling while you were missing?

@fishtiger58 Glad you had a good time, sometimes when folks disappear from here for a while it's not for a good thing.

I had a pretty good day too. I went to see my dentist for the annual check up and everything is perfect, no money to spend. The rest of the week should be pretty quiet and I should have more time to be around.

My next dentist app't isn't until the end of January - unless I have a gum issue between now and then...good for your good checkup!

@AbbyGreenhill At mid-December I have the cleaning, but this is nothing, is part of the routine.

@LadyDuck I don't have normal cleanings - every 3 months I go for gum cleaning - he literally digs under my gums to the root of the teeth...by the time he's done the hygienist basically just polishes my teeth. This is a very expensive ordeal and my ins. co. only pays for two cleanings a year...so the dentist does me a favor, whatever the ins. pays he accepts and doesn't charge me any other money.

@AbbyGreenhill That's a shame. It seems hard to get a good sleep as you get older.

He said they like to see the number around 60 but there really is not medications to give to get it to go up.

It sounds like you had a day full of good news. I am really happy to hear that your kidney function numbers have gone up. That sandwich looks good.

The number going up is a very good thing. Going down would mean eventually dialysis.
