I’ve never shared this on my blog before.
A year ago, I had an ultrasound because during a routine check-up, the vet felt my back and discovered I had an abnormally large kidney.
(See my shaved belly??)
The results of this ultrasound were bittersweet.
It revealed one normal kidney. It also revealed a baseball-sized polycystic kidney that was completely overtaken by cysts. The vet had never seen anything like it before.
The healthy kidney was a truly a blessing. Kitties with one polycystic kidney almost always have two polycystic kidneys. But with one functioning kidney, I was given a rare opportunity at a long healthy life with polycystic kidney disease.
Today I went back for a second ultrasound as a one year follow up. Marmie, Diddy, and my vet are flabbergasted at the result. My once polycystic kidney is COMPLETELY NORMAL.
Having seen the shape of my kidney last year, medicine would never have predicted this outcome. In fact, we were prepared for my kidney to increase in size and thus impact the functioning of my other organs.
This is the absolute definition of a MIRACLE.
So thank you, friends, for reading my blog and sharing in my PHENOMENAL life!
Link, Marmie, and Diddy.
