Hoe the weekend is going well out there.
Mine is going pretty well due to:
a) Postponing my Prednisone wean down to Monday so I could enjoy the weekend with P proper.
b) My latest blood and urine work ups have all MARKEDLY IMPROVED since last month's!!!
The electrolytes are all still in normal ranges, the hemoglobin is holding fast at 12.2 g/dl and the red blood cell count in the urine--which last month was a whopping 32.000/mL, (normal being less than 5.000), is now LESS THAN 1.000!
And now for the tastiest morsel on the kidney health platter:
My kidney filtration rate, aka GFR, is once again, a fantastic and faaaabulous 40!!!
Here's a pic of my blood chemistry report as of October 30th, for the scientificy peeps out there, complete with a verrrrry smiley face to show just how mine was when I opened the envelope today.
That red blood cell count, (aka RBC), in the urine also confirms, (along with how much BETTER I'm feeling), that the renal colic/kidney stones that hammered me last month, has officially HIT THE ROAD!
It's so NICE to see the numbers trending like this and it all just spurs me on even more to continue my scientific eating for LIFE. A life that I hope will never have to endure any dialysis nor a transplant if I can help it.
Wishing you all a healthy, happy day out there!
