NOT SO MERRY MAY...

Most who follow this blog and have been aware of all the life happenings in the past will be interested in hearing this.  The family member I mentioned before, who was ill, was my younger sister and she will be following up with a KIDNEY specialist soon for KIDNEY problems. She recently put on excessive weight that water pills would not handle. Having parents who died of kidney failure scares me a lot. I sure hope it is not going to come to us next.  Seems everything here is in LIMBO right now, we are in urgent mode and planning and testing takes time. Hurry up and wait I guess is how it will be. 

  May has always been a birthday month for us..Mother and Father's birthday was only days apart. Here are mom and dad when they were young.. taken in Tennessee. It was right after they were married, before they moved to Michigan. They left their families to go north where there was factory work. More money, better lives.
It ended up that we lived in Michigan and had no relatives here at all. We traveled to Tennessee to the farm every summer to visit them though. It was a beautiful place but not so beautiful to me. I have horrible allergies and when I would go there the chickens and hay and cornfields made my asthma really bad. I did enjoy our trips to the Smoky Mountains and the big cities of Nashville, Chattanooga etc.That was always fun. Sister and brother loved the farm, and brother went coon hunting and helped milk cows and chased the chickens. Life on the farm was sure different from city living.   
Mother's Day coming soon, hope all of you have a wonderful day.

I am so sorry to read this Sis! What kind of test will they be doing? An ultrasound or checking to see if there in blockage in the arteries leading to the kidneys? Prayers for you both!!

Sending good thoughts for your sister. I know waiting for results is stressful...seems time moves at a snail pace.

Health issues can become a black hole that swallows anything and everything. Strength and grace to you my dear friend.

I'm always worried about my kidneys as I had a cousin who died of renal failure and I hear that all the medications I take could eventually affect my kidneys. Prayers coming for your sister.

May is a good month for birthdays. Mine comes in a week.
