Happy Anniversary to Us
This week we had two trips to the Dr. in G'ville. Monday was again a short day there. The Dr. wanted Glenn to return today to check on his white blood cell count because it continues to go down unexplainably. Today it went up ever so slightly. His kidney function went down a little. Glenn asked him what he thought about whether he should go ahead with having the fistula placed, and he said probably should because the function isn't staying above the borderline level. He, (the Dr.) seemed disappointed about it because he was hoping he had the answer to keeping it up. But it didn't work. Which was disappointing to Glenn as well. He said it's like admitting defeat. But he's not too down about it. He's resigned to it. So, in a nut shell, the original disease, Light Chain Deposition Disease, isn't arrested, and the kidneys continue to be damaged more and more by it. As I mentioned on facebook, in commenting on today being our 32nd anniversary, we were actually celebrating life just by the fact we are still going there, ie he is still alive. That is truly a celebration every day.
