Blood Test Results

The above is her renal panel function test.  It is a blood test that checks how well her kidneys are functioning.  Her Nephrologist is happy about the BUN and Creatnine...which are the major markers for kidney failure.  Based on the numbers, her kidneys are still working pretty good (or her one is working better than expected).  We do have to go back in 2 weeks to check on her Calcium levels because they have never been high and there is a little concern.  I am thinking it is all the cheese and dairy products she is starting to eat.  She probably eats 5 pieces of cheese a day.  I don't really want to limit her cheese either because it is something she loves.  Hopefully it is a fluke in the test and we don't have to worry about it.

I am breathing a sigh of relief with these results because it means we don't really have to worry about her kidneys for at least another 6 months.  Hopefully we will get some good news when we go back for her O2 and weight check!
