SUNSHINE AND SLUSHEES MAKE A GOOD DAY
I absolutely love sunshine! I can't get enough of it. Everything seems better when the sun is out. I drove to Salt Lake today for a doctor's appointment on the 215. The mountains looked beautiful. I had a strawberry slushee (from Sonic mmmmmmm so good), I was listening to James Taylor and the sun was shining. Really I could not have asked for any more (okay that's a total lie. I could ask for plenty more but I'm trying to be grateful for what I have) And then when I got to the wound clinic something great happened. My doctor took the bandage off my foot and my newest wound from the infection on my right foot that started in November (not to be confused my my latest infection without a wound that started in December) is totally healed up. Since my last open wound took almost 3 years to close and oh so much work (and then I lost the toe anyway) this was really exciting news for me. Not to mention the $45.00 copays are killing me every time I go to the wound clinic. So one less thing to worry about! My blood work comes back tomorrow and I will know what is going on with my newest infection. Also I should know what my kidneys are doing, although if it's worse than last time I'm not sure I want to know. Okay I really want to know because knowledge is POWER! Hey that sounds good but it's not entirely true. Sometimes knowledge is just scary.
