A Bit of Bad News

I just got a call from my doctor.  He wants me to check into the hospital asap, as he thinks I might be having kidney failure.  This can't be good.  The blog will sort of be on hiatus, except for some things I've already scheduled.  Keep a good thought for me.

Sending you positive thoughts that things will work out fine for you.

Whatever's going on with the kidneys can be turned around most of the time (according to my wife, who works in the hospital). You're getting all the good wishes I can muster. Everything's either crossed or twisted.

Deb said...

All best thoughts, prayers, and wishes going your way. Take care.

(Coincidently, a friend had to hospitalized with kidney failure last week. Turned out it was a combination of dehydration along with the blood pressure medication he takes. The friend had to have a round of dialysis just to clear his kidneys out, but he's doing fine now. Hope your situation will also end positively.)
