losing this game

Well, the renal guy has decided to put me on comfort care only now. I can't fight the anasarca without the endo finding a way to balance the hormones enough to help me keep my salt levels up. I have heard two birthdays in a row that I would not make it to the next, but for some reason I believe them this time. Something is going to have to change drastically in order for me to survive. Even still, I find myself unable to stop fighting. God give me the strength to keep going.

    emoticon I found a Dr. who might be able to come up with some good ideas. She does phone consults for free. Let me know if you want to speak to her. emoticon

    I don't really know what to say. Reading entries from your blogs has put things into the perspective for me. I've gotten off to a slow start this year due to a knee injury. I torqued the MCL when I slipped and fell while stepping out of the shower. I've been using crutches, taking prednisone for swelling, and oxycodone for pain so I can sleep at night, and I haven't been able to exercise how I would like to. My doctor wants to have an MRI done if it's not any better in two weeks. I've been feeling sad discouraged. I don't need this when I'm trying to eat healthier and get into the habit of regular exercise again.

    I really don't have anything to complain about, it's just my knee and with care it will get better. I am so impressed with your resilience, your strength and your will to survive. You must be a very strong soul to deal with all that you are going through right now. Ecclesiastes 3:1 reassures us that there is a season and a time for every purpose under the heavens. We struggle wondering what that purpose is. If we put our faith and trust in God eventually he will reveal the purpose for the trials that we go through in our lives. I will keep you in my prayers.

    God willgive you the strength you need to face this crisis.

    Make Today a Great Day and tomorrow will take care of itself when it gets here.
