Well, it's been quite a day.

It started yesterday when I got my test results from the doctor's office. The test showed a drop in kidney function and my doctor directed me to make an appointment with a nephrologist right away. Last night I felt pretty scared and sad. Today I have rebounded somewhat. I called the nephrologist this morning and made an appointment for June 28. I am still far away from kidney failure but it worries me to see change. I'll learn more when I see the kidney doctor.

I was planning to renew my driver's license, but when I got out the letter I read it more carefully and realized that after renewing, I would get a temporary license for fifteen days. I don't want to have a temporary license when I'm flying, so I'm going to wait until after the trip.

It didn't matter, because my DIL called last night and asked if I could babysit all day today. She has a job with irregular hours and she can't pin her boss down to a schedule, so sometimes she is caught up short. Add to that, her mom (C) is traveling now, so she doesn't have her to fall back on.

So I stayed with the boys and took them to a movie (Captain Underpants) and lunch (Buffalo Wild Wings), as well as the library. My day cost about $37. Then, after I was off duty, I went to the grocery and spent $11. Variables are now at 30%.

I'll be needed tomorrow as well. Tomorrow will be somewhat different, as I'll be taking them to their music lessons, and I don't plan on any outings.

I should do a load of laundry tonight, but I'm tired and it can wait another day.

    I can see why you were sad and scared--I'd be pretty freaked out too! That said, it sounds manageable and you're on top of it. I'm sure it'll be OK!
