Went for my ultrasound this morning, turned in the 24 hr collection and had more bloodwork taken. probably won't hear from the Dr. til at least Tuesday. Not feeling so great about the ultrasound. She checked the left kidney twice. Technician is not allowed to tell anything. Now I will be on pins and needles til I hear something. Think I'm going to hang the phone around my neck so i won't have to look for it when it rings.( I am alway misplacing the darned thing) Might be a good weekend to do some sewing. At least it will occupy my mind. Going to treat myself to some sausage stuufed mushrooms and maybe that apple sundae cake before they cut me off from food entirely. That's a joke, I hope.

Hi sue
Sorry for having to wait around for all the tests . But I think you have it in you to do this. I have you in my prayers and in my thoughts as well.
I pray your creatinine comes up. We need that to come up, not go down.
Please keep us posted on your progress. A big hug for you, VL

The nephrologist just called, some good news, some not so good news. My kidney function is at least 60% maybe as much as 65%. Creatinine is 1.1, down from 1.2. Not so good news is they found some cysts on my kidneys and I am scheduled for a ct next Tues. She requested that I schedule it for next week..don't know if that is cause for worry or not The impression I got was the sooner, the better. I did not expect to hear anything so soon, so at least I won't be wondering all weekend what is going on. Now for more waiting on the next test. I will not panic. I will not panic. I will not look for anymore information online. OK send me peaceful words. Right now I'm drawing a blank. I feel fine, so how bad can it be? Please don't answer that.

I really know very little about kidney functioning or Creatinine, but I will let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I will keep you there and pray for peace as you go through the weekend and into this next test. Best of health to you. Heidi

I discovered them a few months ago at the local grocery but they don't always have them, so I found a recipe online and now I can have them whenever I like. And they're good for me.
