Another Test

Hey, Y'all,
It seems I can't escape medical tests...after the blood test I took last Friday, I got a call from the doctor's office with my blood test results, but I didn't take the call, because my cell phone was in a different room than I was when the call came in. So, today after the Bible study group met, I came home for awhile and then went to the doctor's office so I could get the report first hand.

They want me to get a sonogram of my bile duct to see if I have gall stones (because of my continued elevated liver enzymes). So I will be getting that test done on Friday, and I am sure it is just because of the liver abcesses that I had following the gall bladder surgery that I had a 18 months ago. One good result of the blood test shows that my LDL (bad cholesterol) is down to 97, which is really good, thanks to the Crestor that I have been taking for the past 30 days. On the down side, if one has liver disease, one should not take cholesterol medications.

Well, we shall just have to wait and see what develops, won't we?

The weather here is warming a little with each day, and I am glad to see that. I have almost completed the work on my fireplace project. I have yet to spray the fixative on it and then get it installed. This morning to go out into the cold, I layered four layers of clothing on my upper body, and boy, did it ever help. I didn't get cold except for my face.

Well, that is about it for today. Please remember Teresa in prayer over the next week, since she will be having her eighth chemo treatment tomorrow, followed by several days of "down time". Thank you ever so much. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.

Hope the test goes well for you.I had a bad liver for years then they discovered it was a certain medication I was taking was not being processed through the liver causing toxins in my body. I had treatment, came off the offending medication and the liver healed it's self

Take care.

Will pray for Teresa and you, too. Glad your cholesterol is better and hope the test goes well. Just popping in to check on you and say hello. It is so cold and snowy here. Windchills below zero some mornings. I am ready for spring!
