2/14/19 - My 1st Hot Valentine's Day Date
Today, for Valentine’s Day, I had a hot date. I don’t know what that means exactly, but Mom and Dad said one of my girlfriends (from when I was inpatient at the hospital) was planning to meet me this morning after my appointment. I couldn’t help but grin ear to ear!
Mom and I left the house around 4:30am and drove to Milwaukee to go to my lab appointment this morning. I had to get my blood drawn again to recheck my medicine levels and things. My Tachrolimus level has been low and, if you have been reading my blogs, you know that it’s been a little headache to try to get back up to where it’s supposed to be. I got my blood drawn and then Mom and I went into the waiting room to give me my medicines for the day and so I could eat before the car ride home. It’s always interesting to us how people stare when Mom busts out syringes full of medicines in public. We can’t help it and I need my medicine on time, so we just do our thing and let people watch. I can’t have medicine before my lab appointment because it will mess up the results and it’s also just too early for them. So, wee got that done, I ate and then she walked into the waiting room…my Valentine! She came up to me and, with Mom’s okay, she scooped me up for a smooch on the cheek. I can’t lie, I got pretty bashful. She put me down so I was more at ease and then talked to me. I was being shy, I’m not sure why really, and covered my face with my blankie. She was really pretty, that was it. Her and Mom talked until I came out of my shell and then we visited like old times. It was the perfect Valentines Day date. Her and I used to spend so many long nights together at the hospital and she’d always be very sweet to me. Mom says she’s sweet on me. I guess girls just can’t resist my cheeks and blue eyes? We all had to go, eventually, and she walked with us down the long hall to the parking area and said goodbye. I don’t know when I’ll see her again, but I hope it’s soon. Mom got her number for me so I can send her pictures sometimes. Later, when we got home, I went with Mom to work and then played with my toys before dozing off early to bed. Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day, too! -Heath
