And it starts again - FSGS Sucks

Ok, it's been about 24 hours since my last round of diarrhea started, and I'm right on schedule for tonight as well.  I'm hoping that I took the immodium early enough so that I can get some sleep.  I've already made 3 mad dashes to the bathroom...Dear Lord, please give me some relief.

No nausea today but the swelling never went down.  I called my neph to get the results from my last blood draw.  Most everything was in range, except my calcium was low and my Cpk high (194).  I'm not exactly sure what that means, as my research didn't produce too many useful results, but hopefully I'll get to talk to Dr. Santos tomorrow.

I got home tonight, ate some dinner and took a soaking bath in epsom salt to soothe my weary asshole.  And not 20 minutes after getting out of the tub did it start all over again.  God, I'm so sick of this shit (no pun intended).  The gurgling in my belly brings on a wave of emotions that I can't describe.  The size of my feet terrify me...they hurt today, and I'm scared that if one of the dogs steps on my feet that they might explode.  Seriously.

How in the hell am I going to function all day tomorrow standing up, walking around and wearing steel-toe shoes??????
