    Hello Val

    No ideas for you I'm afraid but just wanted to say hope all is well with your kidneys when you have the test and that you are recovering from the bug you have had. I do think that making sure you were drinking plenty was a good plan anyway.

    Thinking of you.

    Lots love Tilly xxx

    Sorry pal, kidneys are the one thing I've (so far) not had problems with...........have I heard that cranberry juice is good for them?

    Oh dear valval, it never rains but it pours. I am afraid I have no idea about the kidney question - I think that's one for either your GP or NHS Direct. I hope you are on the mend. DD

    Hi Val,

    I don't know the answer flower but wanted to just leave you a ((( ))) and a hope. When you go for the bloods tell them about the bug cus they might want to rearrange the bloods. They have mine a couple of times. Hope you will soon feel a hell of a lot better. Cris xx

    Hi Val,

    How are you today? Has the stomach bug finally gone yet? Fingers crossed that the cranberry juice will do the trick and your next test will be within the norm.
