    6 weeks ago I didn't know I had any trouble then they said my blood workups was worrisome and they wanted me to see a specialist. Now he tells me I'm at 41% effeciency. IIRC below 20% they start talking dialysis and below 15% you are into full bore.
    A good thing from this........No more cola and minimal coffee on the weekend, lotsa water, and eating pretty much without red meat (fish and grilled chicken), my blood sugar reading are down to normal with only minimal insulin. The wife and I along with the dog (can a maltese reallybe called a dog??) are up to a 1.25 mile hiking each night and went to Eagle Creek over the weekend and took a 2 mile hike.
    The wife and I are adopting the atitude of "It is what it Is" but I'm gonna fight it all the way.

    Sounds like you have a plan and are willing to do what it takes to keep it from getting worse Geezer. Keep up the hard work for staying off the treatment is worth the loss of a few pleasures.

    Totally agree ECKruger. Thye have moved ahead of Framily.

    Down 12 lbs. to the lowest I've been in about 11 years. Gave up coffee for tea (except on the weekend) no more bourbon and eating like a goat. Exercise at Family Fun and Fitness at least 30 min every day except Sunday.

    I'm on a road trip and have stopped in Dallas. Went downtown at about 8 pm. I knew that the place wouldn't be bustling on a Sunday evening, but I was still expecting to see some humanity considering that this is the downtown of one of the largest cities in the country. Downtown Indy on Sunday evenings still has a steady stream of people. Instead, I found downtown Dallas to be the most dead and desolate downtown of any city that I've ever been to. Major roads adorned with skyscrapers had no pedestrians or vehicular traffic to speak of. Most restaurants were closed. It was like being in one of those movies where a disease wipes out the entire population and the city is a ghost town frozen in time.

    I'm sure that Downtown Dallas is busy during weekdays, but what makes a downtown great is when people are out on nights and weekends. After visiting this creepy and dead downtown, I have an even greater appreciation for Downtown Indy. Downtown Indy seems like the Chicago Loop after visiting Downtown Dallas.

    I'm visiting the Kennedy Assassination Museum on the way back and hopefully I have a better experience then.

    I was in Memphis four months ago and had a very similar experience. I would say that this is a southern thing, but Charlotte is pretty lively no matter when you go uptown.

    Anyone ever had their gallbladder removed? Mine's full of stones and I've got a blocked bile duct I'm getting taken care of with an ERCP on Monday and then getting the gallbladder out as soon as possible after that. I've never been anesthetized so that's all I'm really nervous about, and that's not a big deal, just curious what to expect after the surgery.
    How did the gall bladder removal go? Mine was pretty easy when they did it, all except for the whole catherder thing. That was sore for 2 weeks. I had so many stones it was hard to get out but I felt so much better. Anesthesia is always a tricky thing but I have never had problems myself. I did get in a situation where the kids painted my toe nails and I had to explain while passing out for my ankle surgery, lol.

    Thanks for asking.

    I wound up needing to get two separate ERCPs since apparently I've got an "oddly shaped stomach" and the surgeon in Lafayette couldn't reach the blockage. So ran up to Indy a couple days later and the guy there did it no problem. Had the first one Monday, second one Wednesday, and the keyhole surgery Friday. The actual procedures were fine, no ill effects other than a sore throat for a few days from having all the tubes and scopes down my throat. Was pretty damn sore for a few days but wasn't that bad as long as I didn't pivot at the waist. For a week after I had a tube with a bottle on the end to collect...fluid that I had to empty when needed. Once I got over the initial weirdness of having a freaking tube hanging out of my stomach it wasn't that bad, was a freaky as hell feeling getting it pulled out but it was fine. The incisions are still a little noticeable but they're healed up fine and everything. Getting knocked out was fine, didn't have any of the super loopy reactions or anything, I apparently just kept asking my brother what time it was every 2 minutes lol.

    Other than the soreness from the actual surgery I've been great, no more attacks or anything and have all of my appetite back and putting weight back on. Would definitely recommend it to anyone that runs into gallbladder troubles. I couldn't seem to express to people how bad the attacks hurt w/o them thinking I was exaggerating, the last couple attacks were literally the worst pain I've ever felt, really reassuring to never have to worry about that again.

    I went back through Dallas on Friday to hit the Kennedy Assassination site (interesting experience). The downtown was obviously much more busy on a Friday afternoon than it was on a Sunday evening. I drove all around the Metroplex and made sure to hit Arlington so that I could get a pic of the Cowboys Stadium. Overall, I loved the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex and could definitely live there. Everything is so new and big there. I guess they just don't have nightlife in the center of downtown. Maybe it's more on the edges of the downtown district, I'm not for sure. I didn't have enough time to find out.

    Well tomorrow is the day. I'm getting rid of my hammer fired Sig 9mm and buying a Glock. Even I have to admit, they are lightweight and sweet shooting. I've always been a fan of the 1911 style but Glock is winning me over. Although, I will never give up my Kimber .45 Ultra Carry II.


    However......this is my latest home defense weapon, which I happend to pick up over the weekend. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...=434627061#PIC
    It may also go in my "bug-out" bag in the future. It is made to withstand weather conditions encountered by combat troops up to and including long-term salt water exposure.

    OK so the Kidney doc was impressed with my progress. Down 23 lbs in a bit over a month and my kidney function is at 56% (up from 41%) As he said, now the challenge really begins as MAINTAIN or inprove these levels. We shall see. I've had quite a scare put on me so hopefully that will make me listen this time.

    On another note....it happend, I;m a Glock man now. In fact I bought a pocket .380 AND the Model 19 9mm. I hope to get to shoot them tomorrow.

    Talk to your doctor about using fish oil for kidney disease. I have seen some studies in animals that is does slow progression of the disease.

    My 91 yea old mother fell and broke her hip today exactly 1 year (to the day) after falling and breaking an arm. She says she is never ever leaving her house on August 28th....never again. At least she fell in the hospital parking lot.
