The kidney is holding its own at this time. My creatinine for November 16, 2016 was 3.2 and for today, it was 2.9. Dr. A is doing his best at prolonging the idea of putting me on dialysis at this time so he is hoping not to for a while yet. I did gain some weight but it is the Christmas holiday but I did not gain too much. I gained 3 lbs. No big deal. Winter is here now and it is colder. Dr. A decided to put me on two medications. I have two counts that are low so he wants to make sure I start feeling better. Now I understand why my appetite has been non-existent at times. It has something to do with a couple of blood counts he looks at on his patients. Now most of patients do not urinate anymore and are on dialysis but when I had to leave I really had to go. I planned to go to the bathroom and go back and make an appointment but I went to the bathroom and left the floor and made the appointment when I got home and began to wind down for the rest of the afternoon and evening with my TV and a good book.
