A completely different direction for this site! I’m going to chronicle my journey with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease).   I have advanced to Stage 4 CKD, but I am going to outlive all of the predictions that the charts say is my life expectancy. I’m 71 years old and I know know that this disease is treatable. I know how to research and find alternative methods to treat this disease.

I have had a great life, I have a wonderful daughter, 3 grandkids, and 3 great-grandkids plus my grandson has 2 step-kids that are also family and have lived with me with the parents.  My grandson and his partner/wife and kids moved in with me last winter when my husband was in the hospital and hospice before he passed.  Shortly after I was diagnosed with kidney disease so it’s been a tough year in a lot of ways. But I am not done yet!
