Hi all. Another hit and run post! LOL. Heres whats been going on:
Well, things have been pretty weird for me this last month.
I've needed an ultrasound for my kidney, one for under my arm, and a PET Scan among other things. (You may already have heard some of this)
So, Bad News is/Good News is
(BN)Oncologist finds kindney acting up sends me to my Primary care pulls me off my diabetes meds, my blood pressure meds, and my anti inflamatory
(GN) found it before major damage is done
(BN)Ultra sound because of above, and my kidney still hurts
(GN)ultrasound showed nothing wrong
(BN) ultrasound of underarm shows weird node
PET Scan ordered
(GN) PET shows no metateses.
(BN) PET scan shows KIDNEY STONES?
(GN) Kidney stones are why my kidney hurts. LOL
(BN)I started on insulin shots. 1x a night
(GN) my numbers came down a bit
(BN) Numbers not down enough, so Insulin at mealtimes too
(GN) I'm now taking 6 less pills a day.
Life is fun! LOL
On the Goid News side, my DGD2 turned 2 we tried to take pictures, but she wouldnt stand still long enough so they are blurry. LOL
Abd heres her cousin DGD1 - age 2 1/2
Shes a flower girl in a wedding. Im blessed.
And, with DGD1, on our visit, we went to Panera after swimming, I had the Pick2, with summer corn chowder and the thai salad. It was yummy.
Ive been eating corn on the cob every chance I get, and I dont care about my blood sugar! So there! LOL.
I think things are actually getting back on track, so will try to check in more often.
Supper tonite was pepper steak. Yum
Much love to all.
Sometimes life SUCKS! Sometimes it doesn't. I prefer when it doesn't! If you're ever bored, read my biography. Bring snacks..... LOL Monica
