Hey everyone! I went to the nephrologist today and got wonderful news! He said that my kidney function is back to normal. That it was even better than his kidney function! He was shocked and stated that he did not expect it to get this well so quickly.  Yes, I got a nice slap on the wrist for the whole prednisone thing and I had to promise that I wouldn't take my medication into my own hands again. I am so happy. We are now working on decreasing the prednisone the right way. Just though I would share the good news. I am still going to give blood and urinalys every week and seeing him every other week to make sure everything stays the same! WooHoo :-)
