Good news followed by not so good news

On Friday June 13th, Meredith’s proteinuria tested at 4 (the prior week’s count had been 11).  We were absolutely THRILLED to finally see some progress.  Normal range, as I understand it, is .2 so we still had a long way to go, but we celebrated nonetheless.  Unfortunately, last Friday’s test was back up around 9.6.  We aren’t sure what this means, but I fear it’s not good.  We meed with Dr. Greenbaum, her nephrologist, tomorrow.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Speaking only for myself, I am really scared and worried.  Lars and I have seemed to be pretty good at only freaking out at opposite times from one another, and it seems this is my time.  We’ll know more tomorrow, but I’m finding it really hard to think about anything else.  I keep having horrible nightmares about Meri, and what *could* happen…
Sorry to be a downer.  I need some cyber hugs.

  3. It’s going to be okay, though I know it is scary right now.  Meri is a tough little trooper, she’s getting excellent medical care, and she’s got terrific parents.  If that isn’t a recipe for success, I don’t know what is.  I’ll call you later today — in the meantime, chin up and try not to worry.

  4. Oh Beth, I’m so sorry!  Please know that Rob, Jack and I have all of you in our thoughts and prayers.  I have big shoulders so lean on me anytime!!
