Just got back from my Nephrologist. My kidneys are still stable, but we are now checking them monthly instead of every 3 months.
We discussed dialysis, most especially peritoneal dialysis, which is done at home and through a port in the stomach during sleep at night. Here is a picture of what it looks like.
Preparation for this type of dialysis can't be done overnight. The port must be in place several weeks in advance. So we will make this decision WHEN and IF my symptoms occur (I don't have any now.)
I also don't have to remain a vegetarian but am allowed to eat ORGANIC animal protein. So that's a relief.
Just keeping you updated about my situation. It doesn't (nor will it ever) ruin my life. Life is better than the alternative, don't you think?
