Sorry for my absence!

Well I have been dealing with some health issues for the past week. As some of you know, I have a kidney disease called Polycistic Kidney Disease. As a part of having this disease, I suffer with kidney stones. WARNING!!! There has been alot of blood in my urine and I thought that I could flush my system with water and be ok --- not the case! This past Sunday I went to the ER, because I couldn't take the pain any longer! I got a CAT Scan and they said that I had a stone in my bladder 7mm and my largest cyst was 7.3 cm. I don't think that I have past it yet. I went to the urologist and I have to come back for more tests to see what is going on.

I couldn't believe that I was in sooooooo much pain and how long it took for them to tell me what I already knew. But isn't that always the way? Anywhoo I am doing much better and not wanting to begin my routine!

They did tell me that my kidney function is normal and my creatinine is WNL. Yea!

Well, I'm glad to hear the kidneys are functioning normally!

I'm sorry about your latest episode...You MUST get to the doctor ASAP woman! You KNOW that.

Hope you are getting better by the second!

(and I have something for you at my place)

Cousin Melanie,

I'm glad to know that you are feeling better...take care of yourself.

Cousin Miles,

I hear you're gonna make that move to a "big boy" bed too. I'm so excited...both of us will "big boys!"

Keep me posted on your follow up doctor's visits.

I've never experienced kidney stones but, from what i hear, it is serious business.

hugs!
