Thank you

Kathy August 19th, 2010

Thanks to TRIO (Sylvia Leach) and United for flying us!! All my testing came back good. Echo was great (heart), oximetry great(sleep apnea), rheumatologist wants more testing next time. Im still trying to quit smoking. I’ve bought three packs in three weeks..about 3 a day..please pray for me on this. The Chantix is working too..plus Mayo gave me two more aids (inhaler, lozenges)to get me past those last three. They are amazing!! They are doing so much research!! If you want to quit smoking, I have lots of info on it!!

Mayo

Kathy August 19th, 2010

Mayo was great, got alot accomplished. Stephen tested, he was poked all over, had a CT, seen numerous docs, and unfortunatly, they wont be able to use his kidney. There is a small beneign tumor on his L kidney. <–they wont give me a bad one or leave him with a bad one. So next step is JK to test. My creatinine is at 2.6–its stabalized…when it hits 2.8, we will go back and JK test. Kudos to Stephen, he really tried. He is my hero anyways.

Yard Sale

Kathy August 19th, 2010

Yard Sale was a semi-success.. it was just too hot for people to get out. A huge thanks to Mom, Dale, Stephen, Jonathan, April, Conner, Alexis, Elder Robbins and Elder Tii for making it happen. There were numerous donations dropped off. I am gathering a list to let everyone know what else is going on. Especially Thanks for all the donations! We will try another sale in October so if you have more –PLEASE save it for the next one. I just got back from MAYO and your generosity paid for the transplant house ($100 lodging), car rental ($161), and $200 went into the trust fund. Thanks again!!

Back to Mayo

Kathy July 7th, 2010

August 16-18 Im heading back to MN for more testing. Dobutamine echo, Oximetry and see a Rheumatologist to see why the Gout is so persistant.. Maybe they can help me get it under control. Im ready to get out and stay out of bed for awhile. Wish me luck..The United miles donor program  might be flying us which is a real plus cause that is a very long 12 hr drive.

Update:
Stephen is going to Mayo with me in Aug — he’s trying to be a match.
