Ashlea's scan from Tuesday came back all clear. The reason they did the scan (a MAG3) is because her ultrasound the week before showed some 'things' (a dilated renal pelvis) that could have indicated a blockage. The scan showed that there is no blockage and that everythinig is working well. Her creatinine is still a healthy 32 and the doctors are very happy with her. There are even rumours that she can go back to school one day a week starting next week.
Murray had a kidney check up this morning and the good news is that his creatinine is now down to 200. For someone his size a normal creatinine (with 2 kidneys) would be around 100. With one kidney it should be around 120 I think (but can take awhile after surgery to reach that) so things are definitely heading in the right direction.
Now that Murray is busy at rehab and Emma and Audrey are back at school, Ashlea and I have had some free time this week. I tell you it is doing my head in. All I can think about is what has happened. There is never a moment when it's not all in my head. Problem is that having free time does my head in, but being around 'normal people' and doing 'normal things' also does my head in so I don't know what the answer is to that! I do know that spending time with other people who have complicated lives like ours seems to help. Even if their circumstances are completely different - if someone has suffered loss or had a hard time in some way I find it much easier to relate to them. They 'get it' on some level - and hopefully I can 'get' their situation too.
So fellow inhabitants of bizarro world - feel free to drop in for a coffee! Ashlea and I are often free during school hours - you just have to be healthy to join us.
