My kidney biopsy is scheduled for August 23. I have to be in Cleveland, Ohio at the Cleveland Clinic at 10:30 to do the prep work, with the biopsy scheduled for 11 a.m. Recovery room appointment with the doctor is scheduled for Noon. I will have to stay overnight before coming home. The biopsy is done by a radiologist with an ultrasound. The doctor says that I have not been diabetic long enough for the diabetes to be causing my kidney issues. My left kidney is enlarged also and they aren't sure why that is. I have been diabetic for about five years and have been on a low protein diet for two years or so...with no more than 45 grams of protein a day.
I went with my younger daughter, Richelle, to her sonogram appointment this morning and we were able to see her unborn son's facial features, etc. very clearly. AWESOME!!! PTL for getting this opportunity!!!
Hope your day was as great as mine!!!
Heading to The Champion Center in Springfield, Ohio which is near Columbus, Ohio, (actually the other side of Columbus from us) tomorrow with Richelle to help work at an Appaloosa horse show. Love spending time with her and I am excited to see all our horse show friends. I missed last year due to having brain surgery. PTL I am able to attend this year and am so thankful that Richelle doesn't mind dragging me along. lol She enjoys the free help of her momma!!! She does all the computer work for the show as well as entry forms, final show results, etc. and has been doing the horse shows since she was fifteen years old....for nineteen years. This may be her last year as next year she will have to take along her eight or nine month old son...not sure she will want to do that. : )
Have a wonderful weekend!!! ENJOY whatever life brings your way!!! Be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and give them a great big hug!!! We are never promised tomorrow and need to take advantage of every day!!!!
Blessings, love and hugs,
