This week was a busy one for me.
On Mondays I usually work 8-1, but this Monday was a vacation day for me. I also had a transplant clinic that day. So, I went to the hospital a bit early to do blood work as well as meet up with my girls who are on dialysis. I got the Tim Horton’s oatmeal for the first time-mixed berry. It was delicious!
So I met/sat with the girls until they were done their treatment, then we all went out for lunch. I was glad to spend some time with them. After that, I went to see my transplant doc. Everything is still going great, and my creatinine is still awesome at 67.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I went to work. I worked with one of my managers and two of my colleagues for “Take Your Kids To Work” day. We talked about the importance of a good resume as well as giving a good first impression. This involved having me be the “good applicant” and my colleague Sean being the “not-so good applicant”. My other colleague Lucy was my manager Sonia’s assistant. I think the students, although they may not know it yet, learned a lot. I remember clearly my “Take Your Kids To Work” day outing with my father. It was awfully exciting, especially with him being a police officer! 🙂
On Thursday, I had a rheumy appointment. I was happy to see Lisa, another patient of my current rheumy. If you’re reading this-Hi Lisa!
Luckily everything is stable, and my next appointment won’t be until May I think. Good stuff!
On Friday, I went to the gym and destroyed my arms. I’m still sore in the best possible way!
Today I went to the dentist. I paid the price for my lack of dental visits with a good deep scaling of my teeth. I also got 3 teeth fixed-one chipped tooth, one previously filled tooth where the filling fell out, and one slightly chipped bottom front tooth. The whole ordeal took 2 hours..!! By the end, my dentist and I laughed at the fact that my mouth was so tired from being open for so long.
As I type this entry, I’m just waiting on my friend Mikey to pick me up so we can hang out. Mikey and I have been friends since we worked together back in the mid-late 90s. He’s super.
Well, that was and is my week. 🙂 I’m working tomorrow for Remembrance day. Hurray for double time! Boo to working 2pm-10pm
