Yesterday was a big day for us. We drove to Bakersfield for a consultation with the Urologist about Robert’s kidneys. He reviewed the films and test results with us that were done when Robert was in the hospital, and ultimately ordered even more tests. He explained each of the films quite thoroughly, so by the time we left his office, we had a good idea of what was going on in both kidneys. We go back to Bakersfield on Friday to have the ultrasound and MRI tests. Then, see the Urologist again on the 18th.

Meanwhile, we can make plans for our quick trip to Arizona to deliver the sewing machine and visit briefly with our friends there at Roadhaven.

We’re taking this one day at a time–which is all any of us have–one day at a time.

Blessings to you and yours. Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Remember to tell those you love that you love them. We were driving back from Bakersfield along the Woodford Tehachapi Road yesterday when we spotted a stack of rocks alongside the road. Robert spotted them first and said, “Why do people do that??” I told him it was a sign of peace, a reminder to be one with the world. http://www.wimp.com/the-zen-art-of-stone-stacking-is-unbelievable-to-watch/ For myself, seeing the rock stack immediately brought a feeling of inner peace and wellness. May you carry this feeling of inner peace and wellness with you in the days to come.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    Love those stacks myself. Loved that note from you even more. What is going on in the good kidney? Hugs from me who only gained 2 pounds over the holidays.

      The good kidney also has cysts and a couple of small kidney stones. Dr. says he will use a laser to break them up after Robert has healed from the kidney removal. It’s functioning at 98% and has been for some time now. No idea when the left kidney died, but the dr. feels it’s been quite a while.

    Thanks so much. Double darn, but at least he won’t have to go on dialisis. How are you?

      I’m fine. Enjoying using my new sewing machine! I’ll be taking my Bernina over to AZ and leaving it there. We’re going to make a fast trip over and back this weekend. We won’t be going through San Diego at all this trip. Maybe we can set up a breakfast get together in the future. Hugs to you and G
