I forgot to mention the phone call I got from my doctor last week concerning my test results. Potassium levels are normal. No kidney transplant needed.
Whew. I'm extremely happy that it worked out. It just leads me to believe that my diet was behind it all. So, my Lent plans will be as follows: nothing food related including the whole meat thing on Fridays. Am I happy? I'd be lying if I didn't say I was now that I don't have to participate. But, I also don't want a messed up test result. It makes me think my potassium, or something else, was affected during that time.
I have a year to mull it over but I doubt it will change. In other news, I am starting up my therapy again tomorrow. I am in dire need a visit to the big couch. It took me a while to make that phone call, the number just staring me in the face. But, I finally did it and while the doctor called me while I was with my mom (!), I'm looking forward to talking to her and working through the dark place I find myself in right now.
Doc Brown would be nice right about now, just for shits and giggles though

Waiting for test results is never cool - that's great that they came back normal! Take that, kidney transplant.

You should be proud of yourself for making that phone call. A trip to the comfy, cathartic couch can work wonders for the mind and soul.
