Quirks, and Quirks II

I am anxious and full of dread today.  I also have my followup appointment with the nephrologist to go over all of the test results.  The two things are not related.  But because I am anxious about one thing, it’s giving me a false sense of anxiety about the other.  I am 98% positive that the nephrologist is going to say, everything is functioning as it should be, come back once a year for a recheck.  Maybe even 99%.

I have an odd story about packages and email conversations with a company, but I forgot to take a picture of the package and I just don’t think it will be the same without pictures. 

I’m hoping to go home and mow the grass.  I’m really finding it oddly calming.  I pop on my MP3 player and just zone out.  Sometimes the neighbor talks to me, but I pretend I can’t hear her.  Then I feel bad!

 Edit – Home from the Doctors.

My kidney function is at the lowest part of normal.  That’s much better than expected!  He said my particular type of kidney malformation, or as I like to call it mutancy, is very rare.  Sadly my blood pressure was not good, (154 / 98) so we have to get that under control before we can say Kidneys are as good as they’re going to get and then have just annual or so check ins.  So, off of my absolutely no side effects Blood pressure medicine and now we start experimenting with types and dosages.  Expect much whining. 

So  all and all a good appointment.  Off to mow the lawn now.
