Well, 2014 has apparently been the year of random health stuff happening. I’m not even sure where to start…

Let’s just begin with the time before I went to Orlando, in a brief summary:

+ Rheumatologist was freaking out about my kidneys, and said I needed to see a nephrologist ASAP. And considering 1.) My father and his twin both died with kidney problems and 2.) even if I didn’t have a family history, my disease can damage my organs, including my kidneys. So this has been a giant scary red flag of dread.

+ My liver is also not behaving as it should be.

+ My thyroid and lymph nodes are also not my friends right now. So, more tests there.

+ Basically my body hates me.

Since I’ve gotten back:

+ I’m set up for a pre-surgery consult for my ovarian mass on November 10th. Finally getting rid of that sucker.

+ Thursday was a bunch of dental procedure stuff. And since I have an autoimmune disorder that likes to focus on my mouth, and the work needed to be done to not let that get worse, but the procedure itself causes problems… Let’s just say I’m not having the best recovery ever.

+ The specialist for my kidneys was not a fun day. Blood work and tests and just bad news. My kidney function seems to be fine, but there is still damage being done. A considerable amount considering my family and personal history. I follow up with that doctor November 6th. And he’s already told me he wants a kidney biopsy done, which will not be a fun time I’m sure.

I’m sure there are 8 billion other things that I can’t think of right now, because the brain fog is so intense right now, I feel like I’m never going to crawl out of it. But I figure everyone deserves an update on how my health misadventures are going.

Hopefully I can get my head clear in time to start NaNoWriMo this weekend, and make an attempt to enjoy my favorite holiday – Halloween.
