A Swell(ing) Journey Part III

3 03 2008

The MRI was finally approved by my insurance company. I’ll be having it this afternoon. It will take a day (or maybe two) to get results and then decide what can be done. I’ll let you guys know. Thanks again for the positive thoughts.

looks like a good time!

My claustraphobia would keep me from crawling in to that thing. I hope House gets this figured out soon!

If I check back for updates more often than I already am, I’m afraid I’m going to start looking like a stalker.

MRI results convinced them to repeat one of the other tests I had already had. That test pretty much convinced the Radiology place that there is nothing wrong with the vascular/circulatory system. So, the mystery remains. I’m waiting to hear where we go from here.

Update: Higher dose of the medicine and new lab work Monday morning. They want to see what this dose does in relation to my weight/swelling/kidney function. If no improvement on Monday, it sounds like it’s hospitalization time. They seem to be back to suspecting a kidney issue, even though previous labs have been okay. This was a bit of a bummer to hear, but it’s definitely time to get this thing figured out, even if it’s not great news.
I really appreciate the nice comments from everyone. I certainly didn’t plan on this blog being a health diary all about me when I started it, but everyone has been great. Since I blogged about it all to start with, I figure I have to keep up with the updates. I guess the next time there might be something new would be Monday.

I hope they figure it out soon! Feel better!

Oh no! I hope everything comes out looking good! I’ll be thinking of you and your family. Please do keep us updated.

Thanks so much for the update, and of course we’ll all be thinking of you until the next one 🙂

Keep us updated and we’ll keep praying. I think you’re better off without House at this point.

Oof. I hate expensive medical procedures. Glad your insurance is covering it!
