Kidneys are ok--yay!

Our nurse practitioner called to let us know the protein in her urine is still there, but not at a worrisome level. She would need to have 10 times the amount she's putting out to be problematic.

We don't really have a reason, but she did say as she was researching what might be causing it, she read about how emotional stress can be a contributor to protein in the urine. That would make a lot of sense, as this last month has been rough. She is feeling better now and is more encouraged. I'm glad we have an extra week for her to gain some strength and hopefully some pounds before her next admission.

Thanks for praying!

Also, as I was walking in the front yard I smelled something delightful. Look what survived....


  1. Honestly...the pic's of the flowers made me cry. God is so good and He has such a wonderful love for His children. I am so grateful to be able to pray for your family. It has challenged me to draw nearer to Him and I thank you. Thank you.

  2. That is so wonderful! I have been praying for her kidneys, praise the Lord!
