I had my annual kidney check-up a couple of days ago to see how Bob and Dave are coping with their inherited polycystic kidney disease. And I am very pleased to say that my kidneys are working well. As I’ve said before, I am always a bit nervous when I go for these check-ups because I know that it won’t be like this forever; I know that one day I will be told Bob and Dave are too unwell to keep the rest of me well.
For now, however, my kidneys seem to be functioning as a “normal” person’s would and my blood pressure is spot-on normal, too. And I revel in those facts because there is not much about me that could be considered normal! (Right down to having kidney disease but no problems with my kidneys!)
I know that Bob and Dave are still growing a bit and that they will likely continue to do so. And I know that the cysts that live on them are probably growing and multiplying, too. In fact, I will be able to see just how big everything’s getting soon as I have been told an MRI is in order to measure things. (Yay!?)
Anyhow, there’s not much more to say about my kidneys just now. But I did want to share the news. And, for the record, I am starting to feel a bit more energised from having fallen ill a few weeks ago. So much so that later today I will be enjoying a nice stroll through the botanic gardens… which means more pictures later today!
