Dr. A wants to see me next Wednesday to discuss strategy because my creatinine is at 5.5 and my GFR is at 8. Since I have already known what my creatinine is from my quick office visit getting a shot, hearing about Dr. A wanting to see me has made me feel a variety of emotions that I need not to express because I deal with anxiety, panic, and occasional depression, and I am not depressed. Now, I am doing my best at relaxing. It has not been a bad day all day, though.
Another few days have gone by here since I have written. No, this time I have not forgotten to write n my journal since March 22. I have had a busier week than I had planned because I had to get labs done for my nephrologist yesterday and learned on the same day that the iron level has not changed since last week, and I went to the clinic to get another shot that is called Aranesp. I ended up getting 200mcg of the shot, like last week. I talked to the nurse and showed her I also found out that my creatinine was 5.5. I feel disappointed and my hopes were dashed when my creatinine of 4.6 last week did not stay or get better. I left the clinic with DKF feeling down, but no one knew or saw it. I hid it well and told DKF the news. So here I am wondering what is next and to get labs done again next Tuesday.
