Yes, that’s a lot of “-ology” in the title, but I’ve dealt with them both this week. It was a little nerve-wracking, but I got good news!
First, the nephrologist can find nothing wrong with my kidneys or adrenal glands. At one point there was a kidney tumor on the table as a possibility, but we’re not even thinking about that anymore. Whew! His best guess is that my body isn’t absorbing potassium properly, so I’ll have to watch my potassium levels and stick to the plan we’ve developed. I’m just glad we’re not considering the scary stuff anymore.
Secondly, my doctor’s office called yesterday to tell me that the radiology report from my chest x-ray came back showing NO pneumonia! I’m struggling to recover from a really nasty bout of bronchitis. It doesn’t change the strategy, which is to take my medicine and get plenty of rest. It does mean I don’t have to go back in three weeks for another chest x-ray! Hooray!
I took the kids to the Kids’ Day at the Fair yesterday morning. (Yes, it was exhausting, but it’s the only field trip we’ve taken so far this year. The kids were really looking forward to it!) We enjoyed it, came home, and crashed for the afternoon. I’ll post some pictures here soon, along with some activities we’ve done as part of our science and social studies curriculum. We’re having a blast!
Be blessed! I’m going to go rest. I’ll be back soon.
Share some good news with me today! What’s going on in your world?
