Today is a new day and I'm ready for some CHANGE! A couple of weeks ago I had a partial nephrectomy. Basically a small part of my right kidney was removed along with the nasty little tumor attached to it. The pathology report came back and I have Renal Cell Carcinoma. SOOOO thankful and praising God that it's stage 1, and removed! There is also another tumor on my left kidney which will be removed in a few months when my rt. one is completely healed.
I've had a couple of days of shock followed by some self pity. Not a pleasant place to be and like I said, I'm ready for a change.
My weight has slowly cheeped up a few pounds and though I'm not cleared to run or do weights yet, I plan on building my stamina up again by walking. That and not eating too many Christmas cookies :-)
