When I wrote about my health concerns about two weeks ago, things were looking pretty bad, but thank goodness I’m over the hurdle of that long illness. I just have to accept that when I get sick it takes my body longer than a healthy person’s body to get better. Although it turned out to be an upper respiratory infection it took about 3 weeks to recover completely. But I did lose some weight and everything else is looking good with my blood work too.
I also saw the Nephrologist and got even better news. The medication is working perfectly. My potassium level is normal, my blood pressure is fine and I don’t need to go back for a check up again for a year! Since my Rheumatologist checks my potassium every 3 months with my other blood tests, he can let me know if it gets low again.
With all of this good news I feel like wearing a good luck charm or getting a security system to ward off any more syndromes, infections or chronic illnesses. I really don’t believe in those, but if you don’t laugh about these things, you just may cry.
