My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

Jef's kidney function recheck was today. His creatinine level is ok and holding steady at 4.4. However, he informed me today that his kidney function is only at 15%, and should be at 80% or better.

A transplant is in the future- hopefully not the near future. Second opinions are in the works ASAP. Perhaps I shall relent and, after some other doc's opinion, I might say what the hell and go for that biopsy.

Thanks to B and Tracey for listening to me whine today- a lot... (That's thanks a lot and whine a lot!).

B- For some reason I keep getting that Chumbawumba song in my head- "I get knocked down, but I get up again".

Wax Poetic:

"Crossing the vast ocean alone am I. A place of transition I come to for rest. Alone am I on this journey- inner, outer, and other-worldly. Second thoughts of continuance mar my soul. To go forward only means more pain and more to overcome. I journey alone with my friends. Inner dialogue is there to keep me company, not keep me sane. I accept where the travels will lead, no matter the storms. I am safe in my own arms as I travel along with my beloved."

Well, it's good that the creatinine level isn't going up but not so good at the kidney function. I hope that you get better news with a second opinion or at least help finding a better path. My thoughts are with you all.

Oh, sweetie...I'm so sorry. My husband has had a kidney transplant, so if you ever want to talk, I'm here. E-mail anytime. It's so tough. I didn't realize he was sick. I'm sorry. The transplant process is a big one so I'm always here for ya. (((HUGS)))

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I will keep Big J and your family in my prayers...
I pray his function goes up and he does not need a transplant in the future...
