And the doctor said …..Mike is a walking talking Miracle. He looked at me funny when I started laughing, but just shook his head. Yes, he really said that. When I told Mama she laughed and said she thinks we need t-shirts with #TeamMike and #MiracleMike on them. She may be right. 🙂
Mike’s Creatinine is back down a bit. Not enough to suit me, but down to 3.8. Much better than the 4.8 6 weeks ago! Kidney function is at 20%, up from 15% a month ago. I am determined to get the function higher and the Creatinine lower. I will not accept that it can’t be done. I just won’t.
We were talking about how Mike is doing and feeling and the doctor looked at us and said “You don’t need to ask for a miracle, you are a miracle”. How well we know that. 7 months and he’s still here. The kidney doctor wants to change one of the BP meds to something easier on the kidneys. I have my reservations, which we discussed and he has told us that we can change it back if Mike doesn’t handle it well. I do have a call into our Primary to discuss it with him first. What we’ve been doing is working and it scares me to change it. The doctors keep telling us that if he has another episode of Flash Edema it wouldn’t end well.
He did throw a new diagnosis out there, “Malignant Hypertension”. I had to look that one up (as I do most things these days). The definition is pretty scary and the diagnosis is rare. You can read about it here on WebMd.
We won’t be doing blood work weekly right now. About every 2-3 weeks he decided. We see the Primary on the 5th of June and the Cardiologist on the 24th or something close to it.
I’ll keep you posted as things change.
As always thank you for the good thoughts, healing thoughts and all the prayers that y’all keep saying. I believe in my heart that he wouldn’t still be here without all of you doing those things.
