I should get some news drom the MRI today. I am on pins and needles. Fully charged phone in one pocket and notepad and pen in the other. If I don't get a call by 2:00, I will be on the phone calling them. Should not have to wait another day for them to call me.
Managed to sleep fairly well this weekend and my morning read was 78! I like that number and would like to see it more often in the morning.

Finally, finally heard from the nephologist. The news is mostly good. My kidney is Not swollen and there is no blockage. I do have a cyst on each kidney. one 7cm and the other 2cm, They are not simple cysts, but not cancerous. Right now all we can do is wait and repeat the scan in 6 mos. to see if they are stable. Since there is no pain right now they do not want to do anything. That's the "good" news She could not tell me if my kidney function will improve. It may have been caused by the trauma of the surgery. All i can do is drink plenty and watch the diet and keep the D and blood pressure in check. There was a slight improvement in the month between the blood tests, and even though I am grateful for that I think it might only be a difference in lab testing methods or standards. Everything seems to be working ok I guess I still don't understand what having decreased function means. Not sure how I feel about all this..a little sad, I think.
I did get the go-ahead to schedule my takedown surgery, but I will not be able to see the same surgeon..The original surgery was somewhat of an emergency, so there was no question about where it should be done. We sent in a request for a referral from her office, but it came back as a referral to a Military Care Facility, so now I have to start over with a new Dr.
Thanks all for your good wishes and prayers.

I'm thinking of you. I know that waiting is SO hard. I'm glad you're handling it well! I would love a morning glucose like that.
