Bits n Pieces of Yummy Crumbs

We had a wonderful party for my oldest grand daughter Jordan….she just turned 5.  Her little brother, Samuel is 2.  They are my pride and joy here in NC.  In 2 weeks, I will have my daughter and her daughter, Molly here for 2 weeks.  I will be in Nonna heaven!!  I will have both my kids here, and all my grandkids together.  Even the unborn one!  She will have her in June.  I will there in FL for that one too.

So then on the horizon, the same day my daughter flys in, I have to have surgery on my elbow.  Yeah, bummer, it hasn’t even been a year since the surgery on my shoulder.  All on the same side too.  I told my ortho doc he was just going to work his way down my arm to my fingers!!  (I have carpal tunnel also that needs repairing on both wrists and have put that off.)  So, if I don’t have the surgery on the day she flys in, I will have to wait another month.  I am having so much pain, I didn’t think I could.  She said she didn’t mind and would help.  So…the same time, I found out I had glaucoma and was put on drops.  Then just a few days later….another bomb:  I have chronic kidney disease, stage 3, which is moderate kidney damage, which is permanent.  There are 5 levels of kidney damage, 5 being the worse.  That being where you would get a transplant.  I am having tests run, blood, MRI, urine, etc. to see the extent of the damage.  As of now, they don’t know what has caused it.  I think it is some of my medications.  I have taken so much for my migraines over the years.  Very strong ones, some long term.  They have to have taken a toll on my organs.  Anyway, I will keep you all updated.  Sorry to have rambled. 


Hope you all have a good rest of the week….and week~end!!
