New Year’s Eve

      5 Comments on New Year’s Eve

Wow. It feels like I blinked and we went from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. When things get crazy it’s amazing how you can seriously lose track of time (or the day or date). We’ve been talking about time just one day at a time. “Tomorrow we… The day after tomorrow we…”  In the past I’ve set New Year… Read more »

Surgery Postponed

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.

Hi, All! I’ll update about our surgeon visit in a bit. Right now we need prayers. We need Jamey’s creatinine to take a big drop. It is at 7. We have a blood test tomorrow and it would give us a little more wiggle room if that 7 could turn into a much lower number.

Waiting… And The Call

It was a beautiful day! The snow was so pretty with bright blue skies. Very low key day for us just waiting for the call. Lots of movies and relaxing the best we could. Jamey’s Nephrologist called us this afternoon. The good news is the biopsy isn’t much different from the one we had two years ago. Yay! The next news isn’t as… Read more »

He did great! We started with some blood work and then on to and ultrasound and the biopsy. Our radiology tech was hilarious. There was even a time when the lidocaine exploded and got in her eye. 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 »
