Good morning people! I am sorry it has been so long since I have posted but I have had a medical issue that I needed to have evaluated. It turns out I have pulmonary hypertension in the right lobe of my heart. To make sure that is the right diagnosis they are going to run a line into my heart next month to check the pressure. The three main reasons this happens are high blood pressure, dialysis and your kidneys going bad. The fix is getting a kidney :) There is a possibility that it may be something else and if so they want to know so they can treat it.
When I get tested next month they will know what the deal is and what to do. Since we are shooting for next summer this should not affect the transplant schedule.
So the bottom line is that I am fine. The upside is that if I get this treated I could actually get more energy way before I get my new kidney which would be great!
As always remember you can head over to my donation page and kick in a little something. If you do it before the first you can write if off on your taxes!
Happy holidays friends!
