    I love my Neph!

    So I saw my nephrologist yesterday, and once again I am so grateful that he is my doc. I am having the occasional problem (a couple of times per year) of blood in my urine. Not ketchup consistency, more like the occasional dollop of cranberry juice. My transplant center (which is away from home for me so I see someone locally) wants me to have a cystoscopy, thinking that the problem is most likely just a migrated staple from the pancreas transplant in 2008. My neph knows that I don't really like the local transplant urologist and without my even prompting, I was offered a referral to a new urologist. He's young and did his last placement at a multi-organ transplant center. I took the referral slip to the clinic desk and read the patient description portion of the form. It said "kidney & pancreas in Minnepolis. Patient is intelligent and will tell you the whole story." I couldn't be more flattered. It's so nice to be respected by your doc. I just hope he keeps working a bit after the usual retirement age as he is a bit older than I am.
