So yesterday was another long day. I got to the transplant clinic lab at 8:30 sat and waited til they called me for my lab work. After that I went and sat and waited for them to call me for my appointment that was at 10:30. But I didn't get called back until 12:30. Finally at about 12:50 I seen the doctor. Now I didn't see the doctor that I seen here. Instead I seen the head over the whole department. I know him well.
So the good news is all of my lab work with the exception of one are great. I am not rejecting my kidney. But I do have too much protein in my urine. Now having a lot of protein in my urine is how they first knew that I had a kidney problem back in 1994. So I do have to have a biopsy on Monday. I have to be at the clinic at 6 a.m. for lab work, then the hospital at 7 a.m. for the biopsy. Then I have to stay there a few hours then home to rest. I also will have to go back at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning for lab work and then stay until 9:30 a.m. for my appointment. At that time they will have the results of my biopsy.
Now what do they hope to find out with this biopsy. Let's see I remember three things in particular. Number 1 - the protein in my urine may be caused by one of my medications. Ok good they have other medications that they can change me to. Number 2 - my kidney may have an infection, treatable and if too far gone they can "get as much life out of the kidney that they can". Number 3 - that the disease I had in my kidney's is now in my donor kidney.
So I was saying prayers and so were many of you and my family and friends that my numbers would be good and that I wasn't rejecting. You know what? That happened! Thanks to you all for the prayers and God for answering our prayers.
On the bright side I get two days off of work. lol
Now my prayer is going to be, and I am asking you all to join me, is that the biopsy shows the least worse thing that can be wrong with my kidney. Does that make sense?
So now today I am praising God for the good news that I got. He is so amazing and he continues to constantly bless me.
