Medical stuff

June 24th, 2014 at 12:30 am

DH finally found out why he has been so tired and nauseated lately, and why he's been vomiting even more than is normal for him. Apparently one of the drugs he is taking for his kidneys had the dose increased about a month ago, and the drug was causing his body to retain too much calcium and potassium. They caught it just in time. It literally could have completely shut down his kidneys or killed him had he waited any longer to see his doctor.

His levels are now back to normal, and they have his medications figured out again. His kidney doctor has referred him out to some specialists so he can start getting tests done to see if he is able to receive a transplant.

He also found out he will be needing surgery in the next couple of months to remove a cataract. He is happy about that because it means he'll have slightly better vision after the surgery. He is legally blind, so even a slight improvement is nice for him.

I'm moving my blog

June 19th, 2014 at 10:03 am


After starting to do some blogging here I decided I needed a concrete goal for food spending, and also decided to move to Blogger. They have a phone app, and I like how Blogger is set up.

I decided that since DD isn't always here that it would make the most sense to make a budget based on the number of people living here each day in any given month. For example, in June DD was here from the 3rd to the 12th, or 10 days. There are 30 days in June, so that means there are 20 days with just DH and I. If I allow 5$ per person per day, that gives us a budget of $350 for June.

To simplify things for the new blog I just started the budget on the 13th, the day that I started the blog.

I may still post here occasionally, but for the most part I'll be switching over.
