Some Saturday Stuff- June 15th.

Happy Saturday, All. I had a kind of so-so week. Not horrible, but not great, either. My weekly IVIG sessions are becoming increasingly frustrating, what with my always tiny and weak veins collapsing more often than not. On Tuesday, when nurse Melissa came to administer the infusion, after five sticks, it was obvious my veins were not going to cooperate. So she came back Thursday, and the third time was the charm. Further annoying me, I can't seem to nail down an appointment to have a port put in, which would alleviate the need to be stuck like a pin cushion every week. It would also alleviate my hands and arms from the little purple knotty scars. I hate that I'm now pushing to have minor surgery to keep up the IVIG which, while extremely beneficial, is not really making me better. It's like I have an inflatable lifejacket. I'm not drowning, but...
Oh yeah, I finally tried Chick-Fil-A yesterday, for the first time. It was okay. It's funny that so many people I know act like it is chicken ordained by God or something. It's good, but it wasn't a Revelation. ;-)
The gorgeousness above is my 9 month old nephew Kymani, son of K's brother, K2. By the way, their dad is also a K. A whole lot of K-DEFs in the fam. Let's keep the cuteness rolling, shall we? From The Daily Mail:
Heart-warming pictures of the real life Mowgli, a girl who spent the first ten years of her life growing up in the African bush, have been released for the first time.
The magical images chronicle the life of Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degre, who was brought up with wild animals, just like Rudyard Kipling's hero did in The Jungle Book.
The images in 'Tippi: My Book of Africa' - now being published worldwide for the first time - show the young girl making friends with an elephant, who she calls her brother, and a leopard, her best friend.
