Saw Berenson yesterday. First visit in two months. I skipped November. Oooh, so bold. All is good. No changes in my numbers. So Tuesday we start up cycle 16.
Also saw the kidney doc. First visit in about 5 months. As with Dr B, no changes. I take losarton, a blood pressure medicine, to slow kidney damage progression. Lately with my low blood count and low blood pressure, I've been getting a little light headed when I stand up too quickly. So Dr Froch gave me the option of cutting out losarton. I thought about it and nope...gonna keep taking it. Changing what works is not something I do.
Now on my way to see my mom for a quick vist. Happy holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy new year everyone. Be well. And let's all seize 2016 with gusto and a vengence. As my friend Ken says, it's beast mode time in 2016.
