Some off topic news

Hi ladies I just wanted to ask for everyones prayers and positive thoughts right now. I have not been feeling up to par the last month or so and at my boyfriends urging I went to the doctor last Wednesday. Well originally they thought I was just suffering from a run of the mill winter bug and that I was just going to have to ride it out but they decided to do blood work just in case. Well the first batch of blood work came back abnormal so I went back Tuesday to get re tested well it was not the best of news. The blood work and urine tests show I am in the very early stages of kidney failure. My kidneys are still working but they are not filtering as well as they should be. The good news is at this point is that since they caught it so early that it can be treated and hopefully corrected at this point. I have an appointment on 3/9 with a specialist and I will update you from there.

I am awfully confused by this. I never imagined that something like this could just happen.
