Last time I left the doctor, I was healthy. He was happy and so was I.
Then a year later, I'm still healthy, but needing help in another area.
Went for the yearly pap and found out that my iron levels are about the point where I'll need a blood transfusion and hematologist consultation. OY!
Doctor said the normal levels are 20-50 and I am at a 3. Oy ke va!
A 16 would have been kosher.
So I am on iron supplements for a three month stretch before they do a re-test. Yea, anemia is no fun. I didn't really feel sick, just a bit exhausted. I thought that was normal getting old thing. Or monthly dealing with it thing.
But now we now.
My daughter scored the only goal for her soccer team, but they still lost 2-1. She is still super psyched. She said, she realize, they must at least score one :) And she and the team did work so very hard at it. I'm proud of her.
My son's team worked hard and won. He too is excited that he was able to snag a goal in there too. Then he went for a camping night with a friend from school. He had much fun and can't stop talking about the experience!
While the bubz were away at camping, the baby love and I did grocery shopping, ate together and share a treat. She was a bit peeved not to have any where to hang out with friends. I reminded her to be glad for her brother and to also pray for a good friend or two so she can have those experiences again.
I'm trying to be hopeful for the future. I would like to go back to school and be able to get a good job. But I need credits for college, money and I'm sure I can find the time.
Anyway, God is good.
