Biopsy Update

12788680_10153394874893016_1092241755_oNo I am NOT pregnant. The photo is actually of my certified, pre-owned kidney (brought to you by Glenn Millar; made possible by Emory Fuqua). I took this from the ultrasound used at Monday’s biopsy.

Was informed that the biopsy did not get a sufficient sample, so we’re doing it again! Oh boy. Apparently the muscles in that area kept the 14-inch needle from getting close to get deeper in the kidney. (Definitely the first time I’ve been accused of having too much muscle.)

So we’re doing it again next Thursday. Bummed about delaying the diagnosis of the state of the kidney. But Stacy reminded me that maybe it needed an extra week to get better. Yeah, I’ll go with that.

I remember teaching a Bible study in my 20’s talking about how Rest/Trust/Wait are the hardest things to do in my spiritual walk. Certainly no easier 30 years later. So let’s just say I’m getting to exercise those muscles through this journey.

Overall, definitely feeling relief from the effects from the higher doses of prednisone last month. Still on daily low dose, and that comes with its own effects, but not as bad. Finally having the energy to walk more and work in the yard has been good for me.

Thanks to all for your love and support!
