Thursday ~new & improved with Edit!

Nothing new and exciting on the kidney front!   I feel kind of bad that you all are so sympathetic.  It really doesn’t hurt that bad anymore.  It’s sort of like a really sore muscle that you hurt from working out way to hard.  It’s always there as kind of an ache, but it only hurts a lot when you move wrong.    So, I’m fine.  Haven’t even taken any of the pain pills since that first day.

I’ll call the Doctors office tomorrow to see if they’ve heard from the insurance company.

Ended up meeting my daughter and son for dinner last night at our favorite Chineese restaurant.  It was ridiculously good.  Something weird going on with my appetite.  I’m either ravenously hungry, or not hungry at all.  I ate a TON.

I love my kids. 

When I got home my new electric teapot was there as well as my order of tea!  Wonderfully coincidental timing. 

Sending a notice to our current landlord tomorrow letting him know we’re moving.  YAY!

Haven’t signed a lease on a new place yet. That might be a problem.

~Edit – I know have the actual Diagnostic report from the UltraSound.  It says’ – Grossly abnormal appearance to the right kidney which is quite small and heterogeneous ( I had to go look up the word in this context and it just means very different, I think).  I had the sizes all wrong – my right kidney is “quite small and measures 7cm x 4cm x 4.8 cm the left kidney measures 11 cm x 6.1 cm x 5.8 cm (though the doc said my right is also swollen?).”   “There is also mile hydronephrosis (yeah, looked that one up, just means a little back up of urine – TMI?) I do not feel that I can exclude the possibility of a small mass in this type of kidney by ultrasound.  With this patients history of hypertension, renal artery stenosis should be a diagnostic consideration.”

Everyone is now caught up on Thursdays Kidney report.  Let the saga continue.
