I saw my new nephrologist for the first time yesterday. My kidneys are in very bad shape, but he can’t determine best treatment without more tests, one of them that will be extremely unpleasant so prayers would be welcome. Next appointment is Jan 27th to review results and plan next move.
Most likely thing is my kidneys are permanently damaged, probably by scarring from long-term analgesic use and auto-immune disease. The point they’re at now is so far gone that they will probably deteriorate to dialysis/transplant arena. Again, prayers!
I’m trying to keep firmly in mind that God healed my unborn baby from an untreatable, incurable disease and that NOTHING is impossible for Him. Plus, you know, joining suffering with Jesus on the cross for the salvation of sinners. Praying hard for humility and all that good stuff.
