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 »

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.

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.

Biopsy Day

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 »
