I had my usual blood test this afternoon. Because of the blood disorder that I have I am on blood thinners and will be the rest of my life. I usually get my tests done every other week, sometimes sooner, sometimes later. This time, I have to go next week since my blood changed again. I have to skip the medicine tomorrow and then start a new dosage on Thursday. I was so thankful that the nurse only had to poke me once. Sometimes it takes more than one poke to get the blood. I do NOT like blood tests however, I do NOT want another blood clot, so I will meekly go and get my tests done.
I also am starting celebrex and savella. I have not tried either so this is new waters with me. I do hope they help, but the end of the night I am in a lot of pain. My knee is getting a bit better now. I do hope with the new medications it will heal faster. I hate flares, of course, I know absolutely no one who likes them. I do hope this flare is over shortly. It has been a while since I have had a flare like this.
Charlie had his lesson tonight. He is doing really well. He has picked out his 2 pieces for the spring concert, one is a classical piece and the other is Over the Rainbow. He is a fun lesson and such a good kid. I have had him for about 3 or 4 years now. It hard to believe that he is a junior in high school and will be 17 this summer. Didn't he just turn 15? Yeah, feels that way.
Rick had his last lesson for a month. He is going out of town for a month. He won't be back until April 12 for his next lesson. I look forward to that. It is kind of a drag that he will be gone for so long, but there isn't anything I can do about that. He is a fun student to teach. He wants to sing well so much and loves singing in general. He is definitely a kind of student that is good to have.
Terrence should be back next week so that is good. i have to call this week to find out when he will be starting again. He has been gone for about a month too. That is the way it is for adults. Sometimes they have to miss because of work. I am flexible so that isn't a problem.
Today is a special day. Lily turns 13 today. Hard to believe that young lady is 13 but she is. I remember her when she was about 3 and so tiny! She is an official teenager now. She is growing up so fast. I am not sure when she and I will be able to celebrate together, but I will fit in somehow. It is actually her schedule that is difficult, not mine. She is much busier than I am. I have lots of free time, it is Lily that doesn't. It is nice though that she is busy. I wish I were busier at times. I have way to much time on my hands some days. Of course, I do have stuff that I could be doing, cleaning, laundry, things like that, but hey, sometimes I would rather read, or watch TV or talk on the phone. These things are much more fun.
Anyways, I do hope that you have had a good day too.
