I Am Quilting again...

Its been a while since I last posted and I was recently asked about my last post regarding my health since my Strokes.  So here's an update....

I am very glad to be able to say that the doctors never found anything to which they could attribute my Strokes.  Why I had them is still a mystery but I have since been declared perfectly healthy and I have been taken off of all the precautionary medications I was taking.

However, before i was taken off of those meds one of those medications caused a brief but rather frightening episode this summer.  I was taking Lipitor and it caused me to experience Rhabdomyolysis which is a severe breakdown of muscle tissue.

I wound up spending a day in the hospital as Rhabdomyolysis often leads to kidney failure.  A normal CPK level (the indicator that concerned the doctors) is between 0 and 1.  I was at 3,480!  The doctor told me he had never seen a level so high without severe kidney damage.  One week later I was back to "normal" with no kidney damage.

On another note, I earned my Master's Degree and I now have time to quilt again... So watch for more quilting posts soon, as I just started a new project and I have decided to do Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt this year.

Until His work in me is complete...
