While reading in Proverbs I came across a saying from Rabbi Rami Shapiro author of Proverbs: Annotated & Explained.
The loudest alarm is the growing fear that gnaws at the ignorant, robbing them of any true tranquility.
Today it’s nephrology syndrome being caused by possible lupus. I looked at the doctor and asked, “What’s that?” It’s when the protein in your urine is spilling into your body which causing the swelling and edema.It also causes very high cholesterol. It has to do with the kidney function and mine is not functioning correctly. I then asked if it was serious and he said, “yes if untreated.” So, now I’m off to see a Nephrologist! sigh, sigh.
Wait, there is good news! I do not have Celiac and I can go back to a regular diet. YAY!!! No more mushy pizza or stiff bread. I hear a Panera Bagel calling my name sometime this weekend. Oh pasta, where for art thou? I can’t wait!!!
I also don’t need to think about selling my house due to all of the stairs because I have NO signs of arthritis. NONE!!! Ma, I don’t need your walker yet!!! It’s not trigeminal neuralgia either so no neurological medicines. Whew!
So what does all of this mean? I don’t know yet. I have to see another specialist and right now I can’t get in until March. That’s a long time to wait, don’t you think? I am hoping the doctor can get me in sooner.
What it really means is that for today, I’M DONE!!! No more research on the disease. No more studying doctor’s bio’s and no more peace being robbed from me. With that being said, I’m off to the couch with my little dog, a hot cup of coffee and a good book. Ah Tranquility here I come. Goodbye!
