What A Difference A Night Makes

Woke up after having a good night's sleep. Finished Jennifer Haigh's The Condition (#17). And managed to not only be on time for my appointment with Dr. Kidney today, but I was even fifteen minutes early, which gave me plenty of time to spend with Marianne and Elinor Dashwood.

I heart my kidney doctor, he's kind and gentle, and has always, always been on top of my care in terms of the disease. But today, today is a grand day: my tests (blood work) are better than they've been in 5 years. My creatinine level is 97 -- it hasn't been under 100 since 2003, well before the disease flared this time around.

On top of that, I've managed to lose 4 kilos!

So, things are moving in the right direction when it comes to my health. Maybe I should stop complaining about the medicine, because it's literally saved my life.

P.S. You've been through a lot and have every right to complain, but I know what you're saying.
