Just a quick pop in after retrieving the bi-monthly blood test results today to share that my kidney filtration rate, (and I first typed "flirtation" by mistake, heheh), is up ANOTHER two points since last time!
It is now at 35 and well into the category of Stage 3 CKD, which is just music to my eyes.
I sure would like to get off this BP med that not only steals my voice but causes me to retain even more potassium than I normally would being a kidney patient, but alas, as that drug also apparently helps improve the kidney's filtration rate, I'll just keep a lid as best I can on the K-rich foods until this 6 month attack on the MPA is a wrap.
In other medi-news, I had a Doppler scan done today too on my left ankle, (which has been slightly swelled for years now and since the chemo, has begun to hurt). I am happy to report that at least vein-wise, all is totally normal in there. The scan technician thought it might be more of an articulation issue and I'm sure more scans will be done on that eventually but for now, so far so GOOD.
So boom, there it is, 35, YAY.
Wishing you all well with good vibes for the week,
