Subject: RE: BS: Today Is A Good Day Because......
I had a six month check-up with the kidney specialist, today, who is very happy with my coming back from the "brink" so to speak (protein blood level went from 5.8 to 1.8 which is vast improvement!) I've lost ten pounds since he saw me last and still losing, plus exercising on a consistent basis which he says will help bring down the protein levels in my bloodwork even more which is GOOD for my kidneys! So, I am to do more of the same and I am giving thanks!! Plus the itching I've been having is probably due to the calcium supplement, NOT the kidneys, so I will stop taking that and hope to feel more relief!

For a day which started out with someone killing a cat with their car in front of our house, this one, for me, is turning out pretty good. (Said some blessings for the poor kitty.)
