News of the urine test was not too horrible but something is needed again DID NOT upset me as I usually do when it comes to the kidney. I have had a kidney transplant 28 years ago on March 12. 1988 when I was in 11th grade in high school. It has been longer than my own two kidneys at age 17 have completely failed. I cannot argue or worry. The protein dump in the urine does not mean that it rejecting. We just have to keep an eye on it closely at times. The elevated protein dump may not be anything either but the doctor would want to have a comparison to check and see what avenues he wants to take if necessary/needed. Now, I am falling into the if attitude so I need to stop thinking that way at this time or I will fall into a world of anxiousness and the entire feeling of calm will dissipate as quickly as it has come in the past couple of days.
