Kidney Update: Good News
Every bit of news from my kidney doctor today was good.
He told me my primary caretaker is cautious, a bit of a worrier (nothing wrong with that), but that the change in my numbers was not significant.
My numbers have remained constant ever since I had meningitis.
He's very happy with how I'm keeping my blood pressure under control and he liked how my cholesterol looked. These are the two things I must always be the most vigilant about so the medicine is working and I'm confident that my abstinence from alcohol is helping a lot, too.
I don't have to see my kidney doctor (nephrologist) for another year.
Too bad this weekend is so busy. I'd love to go to the casino to celebrate. But, I'll wait until I go to Kellogg and celebrate with Ed in Worley.
Too bad there's not a game called Kidney Kaboodle.
Thanks a lot for your concern.
PS Bob, Thanks for the tip on the China kidney. I'll keep it in mind if I need a spare.
