Finally the week is over

Way too many appointments this week.  Today it's capped by a blood transfusion.  I didn't even realize I was low.  Physically I am feeling pretty good.  Mentally though, I'm worn out and grouchy. Way too much conversation this week about my kidneys. Those fucking kidneys.  Saw doc Zoller and she's a downer and got me all worried about the long term condition of the kidneys.  Had a consultation on stem cell transplants, but the problem is the kidneys.  Yes, the cancer is getting better and we've found a treatment that works. That's good. Yes, the kidneys have shown improvement and I've been able to avoid dialysis. But when I get paranoid and worry about the long term prognosis, it bums me out. Dialysis sounds like a real impact on quality of life.
