Well, actually it is on my kidney numbers. I am not due for a huge autoimmune work up until transplant or August...whichever comes first. The cellcept was working for the 4 months in a row according to the collected data for the Sjogrens. They continued to inch down. :) Hence why no new numbers there.
Are you ready for this??? My creatinine was 2.6 a couple weeks ago!!! I went from 3.5 in Jan 2009 to 2.6 april 2009. My BUN was 38, hematacrit 32.9, hemoglobin 11.3. Not too shabby. I have a Nephrologist appointment in a couple weeks and I am going to ask that when I get my monthly labs for them to be sure to double check that creatinine. A few people seem to think it could be a lab error, but I honestly feel good the past couple weeks. I told my hubs that prior to getting the results.
I have been told that my kidneys are too far damaged to save them and that it would be only a matter of time before dialysis. This past winter was rough and I thought it was knocking on my door...but I swear I feel good. 3 weeks ago I didn't have enough energy to even read to my boys, and now I have gone without taking a nap this past weekend. Woo-hoo!
If my labs are true, I can definitely feel the difference between 3.5/3.1 to 2.6 . My mom believes it is all the prayers I have been getting. I have hundreds praying for me...perhaps over a thousand. I thank you for all the prayers and keep them coming.
