Good idea Cece!
Richard, I went to see the Nephorologist on Tuesday. She sat with me for 75 minutes just talking with me about
kidney function, dehydration, and such. She wants me to keep a 30 day record of my intake and output. I have to chart everything that goes in my body and everything that goes out. She wants to see if I am putting more "out" than I am taking "in" which would explain the dehydration. Yesterday, I put 105 oz in and put out 55 oz....(this new medication has helped my ostomy to work better) However, I worked out in the morning and you can lose a lot of water through sweat. She took some blood work and did a urine test and said we will talk again when the results come back. Also, she wants to give me a "pass" of some sort that will allow me to go into a local center to receive IV fluids when ever I notice that I am getting dehydrated. She did not give me this pass yet; we are waiting for the test results.
Thanks for asking and for your support..
