good news!

I saw a kidney specialist today.

He said and I quote "You're going to live forever!"  PRAISE GOD!

In a nutshell, my low potassium was from my blood pressure meds and my high protein levels from a natural supplement I was taking for my stomach.  He had me get off three of my meds for two weeks and all is back to normal.

After looking through my chart he said, "They really worked you over."

Having not finding anything wrong, he said that most of my problems are my nerves (anxiety).  He wanted to put me on some meds, but I passed.  I hate to admit that the whole thing got the best of me.

Another praise report, while I was off of the blood pressure medicine I prayed that God work make it go back to normal.  After two weeks of being off, it was 124 over 78!!  Normal is 120 over 80! 

Another stomach (except for two days) without the meds is fine too!

God is good!

3 meds gone, three more to go.  I am believing for a total healing!

Thank you all who have prayed.  It is so nice to know that I am not alone in this.

Big hugs.

p.s., I have major anxiety issues, too. I know what that's like. (booooo).

So warm and fuzzy.
