My Blog Winnings from Inka Stamps

I won these unmounted stamps from Inka Stamps. I was so excited when i read on the one blog I had entered. yahooooo! I now need to trim them and make a card. But first to get the other monitor up and running tomorrow. a friend gave us a 19 Inch monitor and he is going to hook it up for us since it is harder for me to see to do it anymore. Plus he gave us a glare filter also. that goes over the monitor. everything is ready, so I cannot wait. :)

Update on me

Here is an update on how i am doing as of today.I am still my breathing machine, I do not feel well some but get around enough to get things done. I amj waiting on an appointment with the kidney dr. as of yet. I have been waiting since oct.,and they told me they got the paper work they needed from my family dr of the blood work they did. so now it is just me waiting for them(kidney dr) to call me for the appt. the I forgot about my one appt. with my migraine dr.(neurologist) on Nov.6 and had to redo the appt. for dec. I wasn't feeling good then so the appt slipp ed my mind. I do hope I have enough meds until then. I might. :) then I had to go back on my nexium as i could not stand it anymore without it so my other called in 12 refills of it. yeah!!!! :) this stuff helps even though you have to wait an hour to eat after taking it. But my stomach is ok some or doesn't bother me like it use too. I am so tired but if I walk at my own pace i can keep up with everything and my hubby will take down the trash for me if needed on his scooter. i haven't even used as my knees just hurt me so much and the walking keeps them from hurting or in pain as much. I do alittle and then sit down. with arthritis in both knees and my back i found it is the best way for me to get things done. that is the update. thanks and see you all later. monica

UPDATE: I finally went to the kidney dr. and i have to go get a couple of test is an ultrasound and another is an x-ray which is for my knees and back. and then i have to give a urine sample as they found blood in my urine also. might be all nothing as my family dr. thinks it could be from another condition that I have. so lets hope and why is it happening then. i will find out why.
