High Creatnine Means...

Possible kidney failure. Yup. It's not a good thing at all. And mine has been creeping up over my last few visits to the doctor. We were about to schedule a biopsy to see what's going on, but the doctor decided to have me drink more (about a gallon and a half of water a day) and then have my blood drawn again. So I went in on Thursday morning before school and had the blood drawn. I was nervous wreck waiting to hear from them. When I got the call during 2nd bell they told me that my creatnine is now better than ever. So, I guess I was a bit dehydrated. I suppose I'm going to have to drink a gallon and a half of water every day. That means peeing between every class...nearly 15 times a day. I guess it's better than diaylsis!


  1. Oh my, you had me really scared there for a second when I first started reading. I was about ready to pick up the phone and call you right then... then I realized you would still be teaching. Probably not the best time to call :) So glad it is looking better. I guess peeing every 45 minutes is better than not peeing at all???

    Love you!

  2. I had a similar scared reaction!! So glad that your results were good!! Big hugs!!
