Rambling #1: Yes, everyone, we successfully moved to our condo! It took us a week (or more) to get moved but, hey, I didn't have any deadlines to meet. I am so grateful for my amazing family and friends who helped us move our stuff from my parent's house and my storage shed. There were times when I was sleeping and others were working. Thanks for the love! Kaden and I are both loving our new place. I'm sure I'll post some pictures eventually.
Rambling #2: Hooray!!! I know why I am still so tired all the time, why my muscles are so weak, why I've gained so much weight so darn fast, and a few other "whys." My thyroid is not working. Apparently, it's a common post-transplant issue. My radiation killed my thyroid. Plus, my vitamin D level is very low. Both issues can be taken care of with some nurturing, time, and meds. Patience will be required.
Rambling #3: My stem-cell donor has a name - Jordan. I do have his last name, phone number, and e-mail address, but that is all I know at the moment. Oh, and he is now 28 years old. I sent him an e-mail and hope to here back from him soon. My emotions are overwhelmingly full when I think about him and what he did for me. A definite tender mercy.
Rambling #4: Kaden will be playing with a super-league baseball team. I am beyond excited for him. He loves baseball! We are hoping he will be able to play with the city league too. There is no such thing as too much baseball. We love it!
Rambling #5: A lot of people ask me about my plans for teaching. I am not teaching at this time, but plan to go back next school year (2011-2012). I don't know that I will be teaching at Providence. I will teach where the District needs me and the grade the District needs me to teach. So exciting!
