Not good news today!

Went to the kidney dr today.... I have been a diabetic for almost 30 years and no one sent me to one. Well, the news is bad. I am in stage 4 kidney disease and stage 5 is failure. I am now on a strict diet and need to stop one med and halve the dose of another. New labs are ordered for August 5th and back to this dr on Aug. 21st.
What will happen next will either be a reversal to stage 3 and safety, or... dialysis... and...kidney transplant list. I'll be 64 next week.... I am not ready for this!!!  Pray for me friends... keep me determined to kick this!  I know GOD is on my side as well as my friends!

Life isn't always what we expected or wanted, and I am no different than any of you... I have made wrong turns, misjudgments and mistakes, but I never expected this! I talk to GOD several times a day (need all the help I can get) and he has always given me the feeling that all will be fine, so I just need to stay focused!

Thanks to all of you for your support!

Reversal is possible. I hope this for you.
You are so right that life isn\'t always what we expected or wanted but I guess that is how we grow into knowing ours and others goodness.

You are going to be in my prayers more often.
Life somehow seems to throw more stone (Rocks) into some people\'s garden more than others; and it may at times feel like we always get the bad end of the stick. However, God gives us strength to handle whatsoever the enemy wants to throw our way. You have to continue Praising God in the mist of everything; just like JOB did. May God send His Healing Power upon you!
