Okay, here is an update. My kidneys are still flaring pretty bad! Keeping me on 60 mg orally until i stop flaring. I am also probably looking at another IV of pred, but I will find out for sure on Friday when I go to my rhuemy. I guess because of my kidneys and the prednisone, I am having a very hard time with my BP and edema. I have been to my nephrologist office 2 times this week to get my BP checked to make sure my home device is correct and it is. I am currently taking 40 mg of lisinopril and 25 mg of microzide yet my numbers are still reading in the morning 142/126, lunch time 139/119, dinner 133/116, I just took it about
10 min ago and it was 129/115. So I am deffiantly having a problem with my distolic number. I have cut out salt and sodas...can't get it to go down. Anyone have any suggestions? What about
for edema. I can press on my leg and I will have an indention stay for about
3 minutes (no exageration) when I walk it feels like I have jello jiggeling around in my feet and legs. LOL! Anywho...I guess that is it with my health.
On a fun side...i got a kitten on Saturday! He is great...the perfect cat I could have asked for. he loves to cuddle (when he's not running around like a wild thang) If I am taking a nap, he will lay on my chest or back pretty much the whole nap time. It is crazy how quickly animals can capture your heart!!! I love him so much!
