Happy 4th of JULY everyone !! Today is my 33rd wedding anniversary I'm blessed in many ways..

I'm getting ready to take another step in preparing for the hep C treatment and transplant. I'm getting upper dentures !! My teeth are in such bad shape my Dentist has finally agreed to what I have wanted for a long time.. I have a consultation on the 11th of this month with the Surgeon, he will pull 5 my dentist will pull the rest When my dentist pulls the last he will fit me that day with the upper denture as the swelling goes down he adjust it from the inside.. I will keep my lower teeth and have a bridge I guess for my back molars I have not gone that far yet I'm still stuck on having all my teeth pulled on top ! what do I eat ? I can not afford to loose much weight so I will speak with the Nutritionist at Da Vida where I dialize.. 3 weeks I can hang for 3 weeks.. I also need to speak with my Dr. and let him know and the staff at UCSF. They will be pleased I'm getting this out of the way as they will not transplant with any infection anywhere. as it is I have 2 abscesses !

I always feel better when I'm moving forward with my recovery with my heath I detest sitting stagnate when things can be done.. Well Here is too getting closer to being eligible for a kidney..

Have a great and safe 4th..
with love, lesa

You are just this beautifully strong lady and I admire you for how you deal with pitfalls along your path and how you keep your head up. I surely do wish I had your attitude most days. Love you girl.

I love you too Bonnie... Thank you for the support and the very kind words. you know Bonnie I get down but I do not stay there.. so much is going on with me my sister her cancer is now in her brain her fight is almost over.. hell I do not even know if they can beat this hep c and I do not know if I can get a kidney I may spend the last of my days on dialysis, although these things are going on in my life I can not help but to smile when I see a beautiful flower our a magnificent tree yesterday I smelled the smell of dirt and eucalyptuses it bought me back too good memories.. How can I stay down I sit here now by my window it is open and the breeze is cool as it dances on my skin.. it is hard not to appreciate that.. I think it is all the small things that bring us joy and the more small things we appreciate the harder it is to stay down..  

I keep your Brother in my prayers as I do you.. love with more love, lesa

Well happy 33 years to you and your main squeeze, Lesa :):)   It's a wonderful thing to celebrate...a life long mate!  (I have one too...LOL)

I loved reading that you are getting your teeth taken care will be a challenge getting thru it but you will feel SO much better and no more infection!!!  My close older sis has MS and can't think thru things on her own any longer...and before my health challenges, I went thru the whole getting dentures thing with her.....she is SO MUCH better now.  Seeing the nutritionist where you get you dialysis is a FABULOUS definitely don't want to lose a lot of weight and yet have a lot of checks and balances to keep going in your favor.

Your delight in the simple pleasures of life inspires me.....I, too, am finding that there is much solace in each blue sky, the particular song of each bird, and the colors splashed all around me.  

I know we don't know each other all that well....but I think of you often, and will be holding you close.
Much love,
