Dear World,

I am in a fantastic mood and I flamin’ DARE YOU to screw with it.
I saw the nephrologist today, Dr. Courage. And
My blood pressure is DOWN from 160/110 to 114/68 W00T!
The kidney function is UP!
The weight is DOWN by 6 pounds (ok not alot but enough to celebrate)
And he’s given me the go ahead to stop the med and see what happens. If the symptoms return after stopping the med, start back on it, if they don’t (a simple test I can do at home will determine that), get back on it, have a nice day see me in 4 months.

This, people, is worthy of CELEBRATION!

      Not yet. The kidney numbers are still high, and he is cautiously optimistic about a complete recovery, but isn’t willing to say for sure. I’ve gotten so used to the very low salt diet that regulary salted food is almost inedible, so I may just stick to it. I *can*, however, return to normal potassium intake YAY!
