Blood test results are in! His creatinine dropped. It only dropped one point to 6.0 – but it dropped. All of his nutition values looked okay. This delay allows me to bring the girls home on Thursday and Jamey can spend time with them before surgery. It is possible that surgery could be next week. But we are thrilled to have a… Read more »
It is crazy cold here today. -2 right now. I have no idea what the temp was when a wonderful friend shoveled for us. Thank you all! A little bird mentioned that you are all taking turns. What a blessing to be surrounded with such kindness! I I just dropped him off for his blood work. It was an exciting… Read more »
Well, we went in with great spirit and high hopes. Then we had the #$%^ scared out of us. Meeting the surgeon really brought everything front and center. He was wonderful. The office staff was wonderful. Learning about a catheter going in your belly – freaking scary. Since the 24th we have had many ups and downs. This was a… Read more »

Be sure to ask us about that crazy moment. She kept our spirits high. Jamey’s creatinine and BUN levels aren’t really what we want… Read more »
Today we are heading in for his kidney biopsy. The last time we did this (a couple years ago) we got the result of about 30%. While we are quite emotional – this time isn’t as scary since we’ve done it before. We are more worried about the result than the procedure. Of course he thinks he’s a comedian in… Read more »
Merry Christmas! Today is our flight back to Colorado. Jamey is feeling well other than being tired from lack of sleep. We woke up and had Christmas with the girls and the McCrary’s. Then we packed up and hit the road. It was certainly tough saying goodbye to everyone when we had just gotten there less than 48 hours prior. The… Read more »
