A Miracle

Many of you have been praying for me all summer asking God to help me, hold me, and heal me.  Thank you all for your prayers.  God is so good.  Yesterday was may Kidney Transplant evaluation and testing day. Since July, I have entered a new program through the health system that allows me to see test results and messages from my doctor so I printed off the testing that I had done in July and the most recent one on Sept. 26.  I still have to have some explanation of the results and so I took them with me to the evaluation.  As we began with the post transplant people coming in to fill out forms and ask me tons of questions, it was time for me and my daughter-in-law, Erin, to have an opportunity to ask them questions.  I brought out my last result which they didn't even have in their system yet and asked them what the new GFR (which is how the measure your kidney function) reading meant because the July and Sept. were so different.  There was quite the pause. And then the co-ordinator said, "YOU DON'T NEED A TRANSPLANT!  In fact this reading would not even put you in the preliminary stages of kidney transplant discussion."  It seems that my kidney function had improved 15%.  They asked me what I was doing differently.  Well!!!!!!!  First I said that I was annointed with oil and my family and church have been praying non-stop since I told them about my condition in July.  Then they noticed the difference in some of my other readings and ask if my meds had changed.  There was a reading in July that alerted my family  Doctor to a high potassium level and she had called to tell me to discontinue a blood pressure pill that I had been taking for 4 years to see if that would lower the potassium level.  So this was the explanation that the medical team grabbed onto.  But I know that It was all God!!!  I had been taking this medicine  for so long and had never before caused the potassium level to raise.   I have had bloodwork every 3 months for this last year and every 6 months prior to this year for the last 4 years as they watched my kidney functions fall into stage 4 and 5 kidney failure.  The doctors will continue to monitor me every 3 months but I am trusting that God has this in His hands.  He is the one that has my days numbered and I will be here as long as He has work for me to do.  PRAISE GOD.
