We heard from Dr. Porte today. A couple of things are wacky on my test results. I have a slight "uptick" (as Dr. Porte calls it) in my kidney function tests. And I have anemia of chronic disease. We're going to have to keep a close eye and recheck the labs again in a few weeks. If everything looks better, then we'll be relieved. But if not or they're worse, then we'll have to find out more information and make some changes in diet. If it isn't one thing, it's another! At least the pain meds are working. I was able to walk 3 houses down and back tonight. It's all about looking at trends over time, not just these snapshots. Mom is trying not to get too upset over all of this. My dogster pals are really helping her. And your prayers are helping me feel better! Thanks to all my pals.
