Audrey, they did think I would end up on it but I proved them wrong. Now if I hold of for 2 lots of 25 years I am going to be a grumpy old lady of 107. I do hope for one more lot of 25 years. Be awesome. LOL.
I think the only way to live is being pigheaded and determined, I don't think I would be alive today if I wasn't.
So here's to being pigheaded forever. LOL,

Whoops, I obviously 'remembered' wrong.
I thought that you had surgery and ended up on dialysis. I'm so pleased that I was wrong.
You go Wendy and keep proving them wrong, if you can hold off for 25 years I'm sure you'll breeze through the next 25 and then the 25 after that.
I am pretty pigheaded myself, I've always been told that I am stubborn, I prefer to think of it as determined. I wouldn't be where I am today if I wasn't. So you keep up your determination and keep doing what works.
Oh boy am I glad that I was wrong! Phew!

Hi Audrey, I have never been on dialysis and have no intentions of doing this. I have been told many times that I would end up on this from about 25 years ago. A few years ago they put a fistula in my arm to be ready as he thought I would need it then. But I am pigheaded and I am determined that I am not doing this. I have told the Neph that I am pigheaded.

This is why I changed my outlook on life with diet and exercising so that I could prove them wrong. When I saw the Neph last month he told me to keep on doing whatever I am and he also said that he cannot put a time on when my kidneys will fail.

Once again I am determined that I am not doing dialysis so I need to keep making the changes so the kidneys do not fail.

I agree the comment did suit any of these things now but not how I meant it back then LOL.
Keep on being cheeky as I enjoy it.

I read your SparkMail message and decided to have a look at the team page to see what I've missed. I found this topic and thought I'd have a look. I hadn't known that you were off dialysis and was very pleased to read that news. Keep up the good work.

The others probably picked the 'typo' but aren't as cheeky as me. The comment fitted well with your increased confidence! lol

wow,Audrey that has been up since the 19th Jan and no one picked it up but then again I might have confused them all LOL.

Must must say it was supposed to be STAYING POWER.

I am very happy with not having to go on dialysis.

update: report from Nephrologist. Very happy with me, mentioned me being amazing 4 times and said whatever I am doing keep on doing it. My blood tests are as good as before the operation.

I am able to walk longer and without getting out of 'puff' as easily (unless there is a hill involved!).

Well done with your NSVs, the most life changing must be Wendy managing to get off dialysis! Well done! ... Closely followed by avoiding surgery for knees and joints. Great job ladies, keep up the good work.

BTW Wendy, does your more 'saying power' have anything to do with the gain in confidence! lol

awesome achievements, Susie and Nola.

From coming from a place where I sat on my bottom nearly all day through medical issues with my head.
I am now able to move easier.
Not as many falls, by memory I had one fall last year,
Gained confidence
play with my grandchildren.
able to do so much more.
Importantly, I know I can do anything I want now.

These are some of my first NSVs

Get in and out of my car more easily.

Cut my toenails easily (believe me that was a major one)

There was talk of shoulder and knee reconstructions when I started with SP. I don't have problems with either now.

We had a caravan when I started with SP and I had trouble with 2 steps to get in and out. Now we have an RV with 4 steps and I have no problems. emoticon

And the big PLUS is the Spark Friends along the way.

I'm sure I will think of more things. What about you, what has changed in your life?
