My last blood tests at my primary care doctor revealed a "fatty liver", so I have to have a sonogram of my abdomen and kidneys. I have since seen my gastroenterologist, and he said he is not worried about it. I am trying to get him to cover my feeding tube opening with a flat "button", but he needs for me to have a CT scan of the area so he can determine if it can be done with the opening I have now, or if I have to have a whole new endoscopy procedure [this would make number 3 for me -- ugh], so I have all those procedures booked for the next 2 weeks.
The day got better when I met the Wolfes for lunch -- Deb, Andrew and the twins Sofia and Elan. It always gives me a lift when I see them. This was my birthday lunch five weeks later. Nothing like stretching my birthday out.
Chelsea has a new auntie and I have a new friend. Her name is Danielle [Nellie] and I met her -- of all places -- on LinkedIn. I was in a freelance writers group and introduced myself as living in Queens. My profile indicates that I am involved with rabbit rescue and she contacted me. She came over this week and brushed out Chelsea, and was not intimidated or uncomfortable around my disability. It was so comfortable and refreshing. She was talkative and stayed until almost 11. Here are some pictures of Nellie with Chelsea.
