its been a little while since i've posted, i guess i am doing ok, the docs say that we have the go ahead to start trying for a baby, so i have to start coordinating with my transplant nephro, my neuro, and i see an ob/gyn in about a week. but my primary care doc told me that i am being to show signs of AVN (avascular necrosis) in my hips and ankles, and for any one who does not know the only thing to do to fix it is with replacements, and i already have it in my knees, so now i am gonna have to see another ortho surgeon so they can take a look at my knees. its really hard to walk and my pcp has started prescribing me percocets to help ease the pain when i do walk, which is only for short distances. What kills me is that when i walk in to a store and as if any of the motorized wheeler chairs are available they always ask who its for then look at me strangely when i tell them its for me, they are probably thinking that i really dont need one and i am just being lazy about around in the store, and that kills me cuz all i want to yell is that i cant walk far and who are they to judge me, but all i do is smile and say thank you when they give it to me. it makes me sooooooo mad, ok maybe i do look like i'm only a teenage, i actually 25, but is it really any of their business, its not like i'm taking it out for a joyride, i'm using it to go shopping in their store. sorry i just needed to vent about this, sometimes i really hate people and their ignorance and just run them over with the wheelchair they just gave me. but anyways, i hope everyone is at least doing somewhat better than i am, i'm just sick of being sick, i think i have said that like a zillion times in the last 12 yrs but its true. Redrose congrats on the baby, i am really very happy for you, and i hope that my husband and i are just as blessed very soon. much love to everyone
Hugs and prayers, God grant me the serenity to accept the

change the things I can, and the wisdom
to know the difference.
