Here's Hoping...

Another year is about to come to an end, and looking back on it (especially the last few months), I've gotta tell you...2010 really kind of sucked.  There's the ongoing chest infection I've had since the summer that I can't get rid of.  There's the IV treatments I've been having to go for because my immune system has started producing antibodies against my kidney.  There's the side effects from the IV treatments I've been dealing with.  There's having to give up teaching Sunday School because of the chest infection and the side effects from the IV treatments.  The kicker was having to put my Sammy-Cat to sleep a week before Christmas.  At this point I can't wait for this year to be over (only a few hours to go!).

Of course, it wasn't all bad.  I celebrated the 10-year anniversary of my transplant in April.  I got to go on a little road trip to see James and then go with him to our cousin Dave's wedding in July.  I won tickets to the Grey Cup in November and got to go cheer on my favourite team and be part of the half-time show.  And we just came back from a wonderful Christmas visit to James's house.  But over the last few months especially, it seems that the lows have outnumbered the highs.

One of my favourite Christmas gifts from my mom and dad (actually the credit for this one goes to my mom because she found it and picked it just agreeed that it was very fitting) is a Precious Moments Christmas ornament of a little girl holding a start that says "hope" on it.  So here's hoping that 2011 is going to turn around and be much better than 2010 was.

Until next time,
