So this is what happened, as many of you figured out from my celebration of National Pee in a Jug day, it was time for my six month kidney testing.  This particular round coincided with a bunch of other tests that I was also having done through my GP.  Some pretty innocuous.  I am spoiled by my GP.  When I have tests of any kind done, she sends me a letter the same day she gets the results.  So I’m used to getting blood tests done and within three days having the results in my mailbox. So I had all of the kidney and blood work done last thursday and every day I’ve been going home and looking at the mail and nothing. 

Yesterday I was trying to think of a graceful way to call the office and say I know it’s been less than a week but I’m use to you guys being extra great and where are my results?  Instead when I got home yesterday I had a notice from my insurance commpany that someone had rquested approval for additional appointments for the nephrologist and it had been approved.  Someone somewhere got my results and decided things were not better.  Just bummed me out all night.  I go see the nephrologist next Tuesday.  Hopefully today when I get home I’ll have the results of all the other tests at least.

Somedays I wish that they had not discovered the kidney disease because then I would not have to worry about it.  The ‘what you don’t know can’t hurt you’ mentality.  It’s not like I can do anything about it either way.

And that is all I have to say about that right now!  I have another post inside of me, but do not have the time to create all the links, so this may be a two-fer.

I leave you with a picture of my office guest today.

  1. Very cool dog!

  2. I am sorry.  Very sorry.Cute dog.

  3. Awww. Sorry Tracy.     Cute doggy though.  Try not to worry til you know what to worry about – which is much easier from where I’m sitting I’m sure. 

  4. I have damaged kidneys from 12 years of taking lithium carbonate… I take a stinging nettle seed extract twice daily in water, and my kidneys have recovered SOME.When they diagnosed my failing kidneys, they were functioning at 20-25% of normal; they are now at 35-40%.

  5. keep your kidney in my thoughts!

  6. Did you get your test results yet?

  7. @skanickadee – Nope.  Just got Saturdays mail and nothing.  How annoying!  Though, I won’t get the kidney results until next Tuesday when I have the appointment.  My GP should send the other four that I had done! Geesh, the things we do as we age.

    I am sorry and am sending prayers, warm thoughts and good vibes your way.  Cool pooch and love that face.

  9. @Kissedbyadog – @stixandstonz – @morningwind – Thanks for the sympathy. Funny how sometimes waiting for bad news feels as bad as getting bad news!  I’m back to my normal optimistic self now.@mordewis – 40% is a Whole lot better than 25%!  Good for you!

  10. Damnit, Damnit, Damnit

  11. appropiate quote….I am so an ostrich…at least I’d perfer to be one. Wish I didn’t feel like that tho. But you’re right, whatever’s gonna happen is gonna happen and sticking your head in the sand won’t change it. Can’t fix it if you don’t know what’s broken.That dog is so cute!! looks like the best kind of office mate!

  12.  I know how you feel… if there’s nothing to be done, I’d rather not know. I hope it turns out to be nothing to worry about!
