I drove 3 and a half hours each way for a 15 minute appointment with the kidney cancer specialist yesterday. No news is good news. He did urinalysis and blood draws. Results show some elevations here and there as my body continues to recover from the loss of my left kidney. We also had a discussion about my coffee consumption. This was probably the most irritating news of the day. He didn’t tell me to stop drinking coffee just explained that my coffee consumption and water consumption are fighting each other…dehydrating vs hydrating. I will be honest and say I had a 3 year old inner tantrum on my way home….and after finishing my 1 coffee this morning, I’m still feeling rebellious. I don’t drink wine or alcohol, I don’t drink pop or juices and I drink a lot of water but I still enjoy my coffee in the morning and ice tea in the afternoon. So…
The best part of my day was having lunch with my daughter and her moral support as well as being my compass around the clinic. I love that kid so much!
As the year comes to an end, I realize there have been so many blessings in my life…there have been some traumatic health issues in the family but we have dealt with them, changed some habits and celebrate that we are still taking a breath everyday.
Until next time….
