The Doctor Wants to See Me

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.

Kidney Update

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.
