I just wanted to update what I know so you can be praying. Hate to keep posting with downer stuff though. But I suppose that is just reality sometimes. I really feel like everyone praying is keeping me sane. Although sanity is highly over rated most days. Ha!
I got the results of my ultra sounds back and they are saying now it's my kidneys. My spleen is enlarged because my kidneys aren't working correctly. The problem is they sent some labs out to be tested and they won't be back for 7 days so they have no idea why my kidneys aren't working. Sigh.....so we wait................Dan and I are scheduled to meet with the Dr. at 8:30am on March 12th. So until then I just continue on the high does of steroids to keep the spleen and kidney inflammation down until they can figure out what is causing it.
Specific prayer requests (Since I kinda feel like being specific is important at this point. ;)
Rest; I have not slept in like 4 or 5 nights due to the anxiety the medicine is causing. I'm super restless and my heart races when I try to sleep.
Also we are praying it is not permanent damage to my kidneys caused by all the chemo treatments I had a few years ago when I was really sick with my RA.
Lastly, regardless if it's an easy fix or something more serious just clear heads and open hearts to what God has for us. Obviously we pick the healing and easy fix. LOL!
Thank you again for all the phone calls, texts, emails, babysitting favors and prayers!
As soon as we know any more I will post.
Right now we are in the "Keep taking the drugs, rest, waiting phase."
