Boise Zoo

On Saturday, August 2, I went to the Boise Zoo with one of my cousins.  This was my third new zoo of the year.  Because of my membership with the Akron Zoo, I got in free.

My Birthday

This year, I celebrated my birthday with my friends in TX.  Went to a friend's house in the afternoon to go swimming, had four kids and four adults.  Then we had a girls night out for my birthday.  The next day, we also celebrated my birthday, so the boys could help me celebrate.

There is no pictures from girls night out.  I did have a cake on Friday afternoon.

Missing Timmy

Been thinking a lot about Timmy lately.  Sometimes it is hard to believe that he is no longer around here on Earth.  I miss him a lot!  During the past week, while trying to fall sleep at night or trying to take a nap, I think about sitting next to Timmy and we both are worshiping God. 

I will also ask God, what is Timmy doing?  I talk to Timmy, too.  I wonder when I get to Heaven if I will be able to get a Timmy Hug.  I miss  his hugs. 
This was taken on Christmas 2010.  Even though he is in Heaven, he will always be a part of my heart.

Yesterday was the Fourth of July.  The United States of America is 238 years old.   I went to three different fireworks this week.  Sunday night, mom and I went to see fireworks in Fairlawn.  They were really good, last about 30 minutes, really cool designs.  Thursday night, mom and I went to Wadsworth to watch fireworks.  They started late, and were okay.  Wadsworth has done better in the past.  Fairlawn's were way better this year.  Last night with a few friends, went to the Rubber Ducks game and watch fireworks afterwards.  This was my forth Rubber Ducks game this year. These pictures of fireworks are from Fairlawn's.

Member Night at the Akron Zoo

Last evening from 5-8 pm, was member's night at the zoo.  I bought a single membership back in April to the Akron Zoo.  The zoo has two baby snow leopards, but they are not on display yet.  The komodo dragon died earlier this year, and they have replaced it with a new one.  There is now a red panda at the zoo.  Here are a few pics that I took last night.

New Lung Doctor

  Last month, I chose to change lung doctors.  I asked my kidney doctor if he knew anyone.  He gave me three names, then I called my doctor to ask her for a referral for the new doctor.  I got it and called to make an appointment.  My new lung doctor is half Hungarian.  I am  one quarter Hungarian, that was neat for me.  I will see him again  before school starts. Before then, I will be getting my fourth ultrasound of my right leg in the past year.  In early August, I will have a lung function test.

   He did show me on the computer, a comparison of my PET/CT scans from last August to the one I had at the beginning of March.  He said there was a mass in August and now it is gone.  He also said that Sarcoid is an inflammation of the lymph  nodes. 

    Yesterday morning, I wore my tennis shoes for a few hours.  That was great.  I have to build up time in my tennis shoes.  The swelling in my right leg is going down!  By end of summer, I should be back at Curves working out.  My other goal is to be able to wear my slip-ons by the middle of next month. 

   The OT is working on both of my wrists and my lower arms are very tight.  I have a few exercises to do through out the day.  I am looking for a brace to wear, which will also help.

Detroit Zoo

Saturday afternoon, Heather and I went to the Detroit Zoo after eating at B.D. Mongolian Barbecue.  We got to the zoo and was told they closed in an  hour.  (We got there around 4 pm.) Heather saw on the Internet that the zoo closed at 8 pm, well, that was wrong.  Here are a few pics from our two hours at the zoo.
