And the week rolls on.

Today was the endocrinologist’s appointment and a spot of not as bad news. My A1C is 5.6, we are not changing my meds, my left kidney seems to be functioning well.

A small spot of good is really nice amongst all the bad.

Tomorrow is my urologist appointment and Friday is back to primary care for a cellulitis check. My word I am exhausted, all this back and forth, driving an hour each way is just wearing on me. Plus, the whole insane cost of gas is just wrecking our bank account.

Ok, that’s about it for tonight. Thank you so much for all the emails and good thoughts.

My Mascot

Hello Kidney is my new mascot. If I have to deal with all of this, I will do it with humor, damnit. I have a bag packed, Tony has a bag packed, and they are in the car. I didn’t get the sewing done I wanted to but, I’m hoping they’ll let me come home prior to anything else.

Well see. I am having a lot of pain in my right kidney so I talked to it and told it to shut the hell up. It isn’t listening, yet.

Tony will have instructions on updating y’all just in case I am unable to. Thank you for all your support.
