Well, my kidneys checked out A OKAY on the retest so it was my meds messing with the results. That is my good news.
My odd news is that apparently I have a fibroid or some other growth in my uterus so it looks like I will be having surgery to have it removed because I want a uterine ablasion done and they can't very well do it if there is something growing in there.
The bad news is that the round of antibiotics did not lower my white cell count and a couple of other counts were off. So I definately need the hemetologist. Hubby can't go with me to that appointment but a friend has offered to try and drive over and go with me. I hope he can because it would be nice to not be the only one in the room in case of bad news. I am rather scared of what the white cell count could mean.

Thanks everyone, I finally decided to tell my family about what is going on and naturally they are concerned. I usually don't tell them until we know for sure what is going on but decided this time I would spread the stress around instead of feeling it all myself.

Please don't ever take that concern for granted! My family (father & brother, no in-laws) don't have any concern nor provide any support at all! Thankfully I have friends from Healing Well that keep me going!

I hope you find some answers soonest,

I would never take family concern for granted but for once I wanted someone other than hubby to worry while we wait, usually I just keep it all to myself since my family has mixed reactions to my disease.
