Thanks Marty. Yes it was a Nephrologist. I have been seeing him for about 8 years. He identified the problem when I started @ 1.5. Last spring I was @ 2.5. My Fall figure jumped to 3.5 and while in the hospital it went over 4 before we identified the infection. I was back down to 3.5 and was progressing downward. I will have another test by the end of the week with Dr. and me hoping to to see 2.5. I am still on medicine program that will last 10 days. Thanks so much for your input. When I started this program, I thought about you and all you have been thru. That sure has made an easy path for me follow and keep the faith.
