I can't brag about a new grandson, but my most recent Dr. appt and test results were good.
My internist has now stretched his appointments to 6 months from every 4. But still do oncologist and his tests every 3 months.
Anyway...Liver function OK-with only 1/2 to function. The one kidney doing well; Creatinine was 1.5 and GFR 36.55. They both bounce around kind of like the stock and bond markets-if one goes up the other is down & vice/versa. But they are in normal range for 1 kidney. Blood glucose is just over 100 but A1c is within acceptable range. Cholesterol is Good-I got a happy face on the page. But the really biggy is Thyroid (TSH). The colloidol nodules are slowly enlarging and although not cancerous, they cause me to get hoarse, have a cough, and the sensation of being choked at times.
The Scan Man where I have my tests accidentally caught the thyroid last fall during testing, and it opened up a whole can of worms (make that nodes).
So I'm good to go for another 6 weeks until the next CT.
I finally got around to posting a pix. My husband and I are Jet Boating on the Rogue River in that shot. The early morning departure allowed us to see lots of wildlife-bear, deer, otter, bald eagles, many species of birds, & harbor seals, even up-river. The Chinook salmon are spawning and then die, which brings the bear to the river, along with carrion birds, too.
Our son and family (grand daughters 6 & 8) loved the wind, spray, and the sun.
Now, I have seen all of those birds and animals in the trees in our yard, walking across my deck, or next to our creek, but it's more fun to drive two hours and have fun with your family.
Tonight is a family dinner with in-laws and out-laws. and the girls will be putting on the entertainment. Lots better than TV.
Have a great day.
