Just wanted to update the results of my visit with the kidney doctor. I had about 8 vials of blood drawn that day and then this past Monday I had an ultrasound of my kidneys. The results of the blood tests were all within normal limits according to the nurse I spoke with today. I do not have hepatitis and I don't have lupus which is very good news! I haven't heard from the ultrasound yet but I have a follow up appoint with the doc again on July 1. So, we will go from there.
It is amazing to me how my own emotions can make me feel physically good or bad. I've been worrying ever since my regular doctor told me things were getting bad with my kidneys. I had been feeling really crappy all week. I have had back pain (which is normal for me) and even had some mild flu symptoms. As soon as I got the results of the blood tests I got up and did some work in the garage, put in a load of dishes to wash and cleaned the living room. I didn't over-do it mind you, but I did get some stuff done. I hate when my mind thinks up a bunch of stuff and I let it make me feel awful.
So, that's where I am right now. Much love to all my fellow diabetics here on DC!

Hello MrsCDogg,

Good to hear that you and your doctor are on top of this situation and you are working together to find out what's going on. I hope you will keep us posted on how you're doing.

I loved your comment about letting your mind think bad things up and making yourself feel awful. You said it so well. We have a choice to look at the dark side or to focus on what's possible in life. Sounds like you are seeing the cup as half full.

Thank you for sharing this!

That is good news and I hope the ultra sound comes back good as well.

It's funny how we are with our emotions and stress and how it makes us feel. Good news is very invigorating and bad news can be down right depressing. We are our own worst enemy sometimes. Glad you are doing better overall.

So glad to hear this news!! I am like that too at times, I worry and stress myself and the news isn't bad. I do hope the ultrasound comes back okay too. I know how hard it is to wait on test results.
