Sorry I have been a bit quiet lately. Just resting and relaxing. Still no word from the doctors, either on the fistula or the new medication I am supposed to go on.
The new medication is for my thyroid problems which is caused by my kidneys, if these do not work to bring my levels down I will need to have a thyroidectomy?.
It just seems to be one thing after the after.
Still not eating very much, I am eating the right foods now, I went down and bought lots of food I can eat.
I am looking forward to weighing tomorrow LOL. I am positive I have lost more weight.
The grandies will be here tomorrow, so I will get some photos this week.
So not much news at the moment.
Have a great weekend
No blood test today, he has to put my on some new medication on advise from a specialist. The funny thing the specialist did not state what dosage he wants to me start on. So it will be another visit to the doctor later on and I will be asking for blood test then before I start this medication.
I am okay just very tired at the moment and some of it is I am not hungry so not eating much. But I did go shopping today for some very healthy food, mainly salads. So hope this helps.
Thank you everyone for your continued support. It does mean a lot to me.
yep I am going to try my best to prove them wrong. I know I cannot not reverse what is going to happen at some time but by changing my eating again I may be able to keep my kidneys functioning longer. I have been fighting this disease for more than 26 years and I don't intend to give up now. I may have lost the battle but as yet I have not lost the war.
I still think what happened a month ago with the sudden death of my ex, has had this effect of my kidneys. So I am hoping with rest, the food and generally looking after myself may keep them going longer.
I had a 3 to 4 hour sleep this afternoon and feel a lot better now.
I have a doctors's appointment tomorrow morning for more blood test so i am hoping. We will be having blood test every month now to see how my kidneys are going. I will hopefully get the results in a few days.
I will not let this get me down, I still have a life to live, it is only a little setback at present. I need to be strong for my grandchildren. They need me and I need them
I saw my Neprologist today and sadly I was right. I need to have the fistula inserted into my left arm within the next month. He told me I have run out of chances. But even though I have to have this in now. It does not mean I will be on dialysis at present even he said i could prove them wrong again and improve again. So I will be doing everything I can to make this happen.
At present I am on a low protein, low sodium, low potassium, low phosphate, low GI diet. So it is interesting checking to see what I can eat.
Hi thank you everyone for your comments, support and kind words on my last blog.
I feel that in the last few months I have finally grown up LOL. This is mainly due to the support, encouragement and love I get from all on you. You all have given me the inspiration to continue on with my journey.
This has all been so important on my journey through life and the health issues I am facing.
I thank you one and all for the love and support that you have given me.
Now I need to readjust my goals
I still am aiming for 20 to 25kgs weight loss for this year. There is 3 kgs gone already.
But how I do that now need to be changed.
So that plans now is to do more of the chair exercises. These include chair dancing, chair marching, and the videos that are on this site and other chair exercises.
Plus with the walking I do everyday should help me to get there. The difference is I had plans of walking 10000 steps per day, I didn't get there but now I am going to change that to around 5000 to 6000 per day, plus the chair marching.
Plus as stated before I need to change my diet again.
I will still need all the support, encouragement and love that you all give me.
