Thread: How Was Your Day? Edition 18

    That's terrific! i know you must be very proud of her and I'm betting she had the biggest and brightest smile in the world. One of my nephews graduated from high school--they only let his mother attend the graduation though. He's got a few weeks off and then it's off to basic training in Cape May. I'm half way through the first week of B Session and just finished a web conference for the AMH 1010 class. I've also been working on editing and making continuity revisions for Double Entendre and posting them on ff.net. The next chapter will have an added bit where Liz is beginning to question just how loyal a friend Bonnie is and Jessica is mulling over whether to introduce Liz to Kevin Guberman or not. It's nothing big, but what I'm wanting to do is work in little bits and pieces how and why both Jessica and Liz are breaking from the food chain. In Jessica's case, she's pretty much already there as she's going out with Steve and gets on well with Kevin, but Liz has just begun her journey from one of Bonnie's court to chess club/cheerleader rebel.

    Mrs. campy actually drove our Volvo alone for the first time, almost three years after we bought it. (Our 2007 Saab refused to start without a AAA call for the 2nd day in a row. We had a new battery put in it today; we'll see if that solved the issue.)

    I see you like the Swedish cars I knew someone who's father drove a Volvo--that thing lasted forever.

    Those old Volvos were next to indestructible!

    Mrs. campy picked the Saab for herself 10 years ago because it had certain features she was looking for. I don't remember her whole list, but an outside temperature display was one, and a moonroof was another. (Ironically, she keeps the moonroof's shade closed all the time now.)

    Our '18 Volvo was my choice because I liked the comfy seats and the minimalist interior with most controls only on the touch screen.

    (Neither decision was influenced by Jessica, I swear!)

    My dad used to drive one. It was a great car. However, he became very p*ssed off at the Swedes for harboring Vietnam War draft dodgers back in the 60's, so he sold it and bought a Ford.

    Quiet day today. Adding a Crystal scene to the next revision update--I wanted to flesh out how her and Zoe met and give her more of a background. I'll be doing more fleshing out of Bonnie and Monique with the summer episodes. Got my lab results in today: mostly in the normal range, but I've got a couple I'm concerned about. My albumin/creatine ratio was 67 which is higher than normal. According to the interpretation, that falls in the range of microalbuminaria. The one that has me most concerned though is the beta globulin 2 result which was .6 The interpretation said it was suggestive of acute inflammation, but couldn't rule out the presence of a monoclonal protein. Well, I'll find out more tomorrow when I see the nephrologist. Wish me luck and if you're the praying sort, I'd appreciate those too.

    ETA: Just got back from the kidney specialist--good news! No monoclonal proteins and while my protein level was a little high, the other results were good, so he said all I needed to do was do what I'm already doing--keeping to a no salt diet and staying mindful of consumption of red meat. Also, posted the latest revision of DE on ff.net. Now...to my classes...

    Glad to hear your good medical news, David! Keep following your doctor's advice, and you'll do OK.
    As for me, well, the job search continues. I signed up with a whole bunch of work agencies on-line yesterday, and tried - tried! - to conduct an on-line/telephone interview with one of them. Things didn't work out too well, though; the interview never took place. I'm going to contact that agency once our internet/cable issues clear up (they're working on the lines on the poles in my area, and both cable and internet have been cutting in & out intermittently all afternoon. Hopefully, they'll have it cleared up sometime today.), and see about getting some sort of interview or application process going.

    In the meantime, all I can do is keep an eye out for any openings & do what I can to network my availability. Hopefully, someone will want to hire me - preferably before my savings run out.

    Good news, David. No monoclonal proteins is the best result. Chances are the residial proteinuria will be static and not get any worse.

    Just heard from the electro-cardiologist's office. They've tentatively scheduled me for ablation surgery on August 10. After surgery, they're going to keep me for 24 hours for observation. I'll keep you all posted when it gets closer to the time.

    Hope your procedure goes well, David.

    We bought a new gas grill for the condo today. The old one lasted seven years—a record!—and was looking every bit of it, so when the igniter failed we decided to go new. It came fully assembled, which was a pleasant surprise.
