Finally, Good News on the Medical Front

I finally have good news to report. I feel as though I have done nothing for the past four or five weeks but sit in doctors’ waiting rooms but now I have good news. My failing kidneys are no longer failing. The last blood work that measured kidney function showed numbers that were essentially normal. While still a bit below the norm, there is no statistical significance between my numbers and the norm so that makes me quite happy (not that I wasn’t happy before because being happy is really a choice) but happier would be the better term here. The down side of all this is that I can no longer take hard working anti-inflammatory drugs for my arthritic pain because they beat up my kidneys making them undesirable. Tylenol, which will only beat on my liver or narcotics like Norco are the only drug related choices. Since I won’t take the narcotics and Tylenol, while it provides some relief, is not really up to the task, I think I’ll look into alternative therapies and lose some weight to see if that doesn’t help reduce the pain I am experiencing. That being said, all is good. I am going out now to enjoy this beautiful day.
