We got the preliminary biopsy results back today and Niki has been diagnosed with FSGS, otherwise known as Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis . We know a little bit about the treatment and we’re looking online for more insight….Kidney.org and MedlinePlus have been the best sources.

We go back in tomorrow for a CT Scan and to meet with the specialist. Niki has some complications and we don’t know if it’s an infection or hematoma. We spent a good part of the evening at an Urgent Care facility at the urging of her Primary Care Physician. So after that we have another pill to take….she is on 13 total now. Needless to say, It’s been a very taxing evening…..
