hear ye hear ye...

Today I am officially announcing my disease. It's called chronic glomerulonephritis. I had this since birth. But the sting just manifested just after the holidays in 2006. I had to go to the doctor every month (just like today) to check on what will the verdict be on October. What's the fuzz on October? I had to be transplanted with another kidney to continuously filter my urine. Well, I still have to be operated. My 24 hour protein resulted to 2,100 ++ mg/mol as against 225 ++ regulated. I had a side disease called proteinuria - an offshoot of the former thats actually an excessive release of protein from the urine. If you're "wiwi" is kinda foamy or too foamy, probably you need to check on with your doctor. The 2,100 ++ is a great improvement than before. The initial reading back in May was a whopping 7,400 ++ mg/mol. Then it came down to 4T then the last one was today at 2T. Doc says if it stays low at 500 to a thousand mg/mol, we would have to cancel the date of operation and just continue with my 8 tablets per day meds (60 mg prednisone cortisteroids, 300 mg approvel, 40mg lipitor). But this doesn't indicate that I'll be out of this illness. I could die today, tomorrow, in twenty years. No one knows. It's a pity it will develop still to End Stage Renal Disease. That would be the time that my kidneys wouldnt function anymore as I would like them to be. Only a MIRACLE can literally extend my life for some more years....and hopefully one can happen to me. Yet if I die now, I would still be thankful for the 28 great years HE has lent of me.
