Still nothing!

Unfortunately, I still have nothing new to report. My blood pressure is still high, I have not gotten the training yet to start home dialysis and my Dad hasn't gone to OU to be tested yet so there's still no progress on the transplant process yet either.

On a positive note, though, I think my body is finally tolerating dialysis and I am feeling loads better. Today has been a very good dialysis day and is probably now my best dialysis day yet.

And yesterday, a friend came to visit and she brought her new baby so I could hold him. It made me sooooo happy and I loved holding him. He fell asleep in my arms and slept almost the entire visit. Nothing melts my heart more than an adorable, sleeping baby in my arms, let me tell ya! This friend also brought me an awesome fashion book to look at and color in, a fuzzy, red blanket (cause I can't ever have enough blankets!), and a bag of Ranch Doritos (My second favorite kind of chips) all in a lime green bag since I'm going through a lime green phase right now. I had a great time and I am so thankful for the Godly friends God has blessed me with. :-)

So... all that to say... As soon as there's any progress on anything I will let you know here. Thanks for all of your prayers and support. <3


  1. Kristin, it is encouraging more than you may know to read about what is going on with you. I keep a bookmark on my browser's bar to remind me to pray for you. It's amazing to see how even such a hard physical trial is being used to help people through their own, both physical and spiritual. I think if anyone has a reason to blog, you definitely do, and I'm glad to keep up with what's going on.

  2. Thank you Ryan. I appreciate your prayers and encouragement more than you will probably ever know. I love hearing how God is using this trial in my life to help others through their own. It's like God giving me a glimpse of "the big picture" and that helps keep my perspective on Him and not on myself.

  3. Well that sweet baby boy LOVED being snuggled by you! Next time he is fussy and fighting off a nap, I'm bringing him to you! :0) I really enjoyed our visit too! Glad I could contribute to the lime green cause! Love you and praying for you my friend!
