I have been missing in action since Tuesday. I was hospitalized Tuesday and just discharged today. Complications arised from the kidney biopsy done last week. I was bleeding in my kidney causing a huge clot to develop in my bladder, blocking my ability to urinate. I was admitted for bladder irrigations to break up the clots and when the bleeding would not stop I had to have an angiogram to embolize the bleeding in my kidney. I lost alot of blood so I am weak and tired but I am happy to be home. Thanks for everyone's prayers and well wishes. It looks like I have been diagnosed with something called FSGS, an autoimmune renal disease. The advanced stage of this disease requires dialysis and transplant but the nephrologists at Hopkins have given me a good prognosis since it has been diagnosed early.
I have been given a surprise week off work to recover and I am sure I will find some projects I can work on!
