Thanks ladies! yall are blessing! I dropped off urine for the 24hour protein, and did labwork today. I think my last urine test was 30grams of protein. Not much, i guess but more then negative, or trace! hugs kathy

Hi Kat,

Are you on high blood pressure meds by any chance? My doc increased my blood pressure meds and I am leaking less protein suddenly. Have you talked with your doctor about your bp? Just curious.

Keep us posted and I am praying for you.

God Bless,

Faith

Hey Kathy,

Keep thinking positive and praying. It may not be an issue as you may not leak any protein. Take one day at a time. My Mom is a 40 year diabetic with 20% of kidneys working. I know how you feel every time you have to drop off a sample!! It may not show up and then you don't have to worry about it. I leaked 160; but was told that I was a +1 typical lupus patient and not too worry until I started leaking 300. I began praying and so far so good. I will be praying for you.
Take care and keep us updated.

Thank you Kathy; I try to be encouraging.

I remind myself that there is always someone else whom is going through more than I am or worse off. Think of it as the glass is half full vs. half empty. lol. speaking of glass; drink lots of water on the day you have your test.

Hmmm, in fact I read that if you want to lose weight (which I really want/need to) that if you drink half of your body weight (ounces) in water; you will lose weight. So . . if you weigh 150 lbs; drink 75 ounces of water. Not sure if it works; but I am going to try it the next couple of weeks.

Let us know what your results are and I am praying for ya!!!

Thanks Faith. I try never to feel sorry for myself, I was nurse 17 yrs and seen worst of worst. Whenever i start thinking about myself, i remember the ones I took care of. I hope i didnt come off as feeling sorry, lol last thing i wanted. hugs Kathy again i luv every1 lol

Hi Kathy. I hope you didn't take what I said the wrong way. Believe me, you did not come off as feeling sorry for yourself. I was not thinking that at all. My Mom called and stated the cancer has returned for the 3rd time and I was thinking of my Mom when I left a message. I was thinking how fortunate I am. I have been praying a lot for her; they are trying to schedule her for surgery in the next week or two.

Take care,

Faith

I am so sorry sweetie. I hate cancer I have lost several to that dumb disease. I will be praying for your mom. Its hard to to figure out sometimes what Gods plans are, I have tried to just pray and let him do what his will is. Alot of the times it ends up differently then I think it should, but as time goes by i always see the good that came from the sadness. Luv ya sweetie! Keep up your faith! Beautiful name! :). hugs if you need me please let me know. Personal message me if u like 2. God bless

My Mom is doing well. Thank you for asking. They think they got all the cancer although they stated it's very aggressive and could come back. She's 71 years old and she told me she doesn't know how many surgeries she can go through. I am praying. Let me know what you find out.

Take care & God Bless,

My Mom is doing well though she doesn't know how many more surgeries she can go through at 71. They think they got it all again; but it could come back since it seems to be so aggressive. I am praying over it. Thank you for asking about her.

Let me know how you come out with your tests.

Take care & God Bless,
