On December 12, 2014 my life did a 360° turn. For three months I had felt sick. I would go to the doctor and was told I had anemia, depression or a virus due to my symptoms which were a poor appetite, fatigue, yellowish color, headache and many more.
Finally, after so many doctors just guessing what was wrong with me, they decided to do lab work. I got a phone call telling me to go the Emergency Room as soon as possible! At that time, I was in San Antonio working. I dropped everything and rushed to a hospital in Austin. I was admitted and had many tests done. After hours of waiting for results, the doctor came in and told me the shocking results. She said if I would have taken one day longer, I would have been dead. The diagnosis was kidney failure. That means that my kidneys stopped working and the reason was that they stopped growing and are the size of a 9-year-old.
