Wednesday, March 10, 2010 -- Updated 7:40 PM CST

I had a somewhat good night, but things sure get busy here in the morning. It is 7:20 AM and two doctors and three nurses have already been in—everything but breakfast!  Correction: 7:30 AM three doctors, and an additional nurse, and breakfast just came.

In an earlier post, I mentioned blood in my urine (hematuria). Since, plasmapheresis is directed by kidney doctors, they did an urinalysis. I do not have blood in my urine now. That is great news. They did decide to do a 24-hour urine collection to look for certain proteins associated with neuropathy. A condition called amyloidois is known to cause some of the symptoms I experience. It is good they are evaluating me for this while I am here.

Updated . . . . .

OK, I'm back! It has been a very long day. I left the room at 12:30 PM and did not return until after 5:00 PM. Since I had a slight reaction yesterday, they pre-medicate me now. I really sleep after that.

Cathy will have a guest blog on Thursday morning.

Here is a video for today.  Click here to go to my Video Blog page to watch Video No. 4
