Clinic update

Jacob is still doing well. He is spilling a bit more protein than he usually does but so far the doc isnt concerned. He has to do a early morning urine sample and take it to a local lab to make sure he is still doing well. We are horrible about this and have yet to complete it. Another thing Jacob needs to do is start to order and pick up his own medication. Since he will be 18 this month, the doc wants him to start managing his own health care. So far he will be continuing with her, the pediatric nephologist, but in time he will transfer to an adult one. When he does, he needs to be caring for his own things like making his own appointments, ordering and picking up his own meds, basically no help from mom. He can do it most already, he just has not had to since I did it, now mom needs to hand the reins over to him and let him take charge!

His medications have stayed the same so that is good.
