The following are posts to Facebook by Kerry concerning Justin.
Sunday AMAfter a little derailment this morning things are back on track. He's been up twice, walked once and now only has 1 tube left! Still working on pain issues; an infiltrated iv and subcutaneous pain meds don't do much for a person! He's now on pain pills, resting at the moment. Dr. Mooney came by, path report was + for kidney cancer, but he was able to get it all!! Thanks be to God!!! 95% chance that it'll never return; in the meanwhile he'll take immune supplements which according to the doc helps fight off/prevent kidney cancer. Kidney function is completely normal, blood count still a little low, but stable. Just redrew to check it again...he will follow him for routine scans going forward. If things continue to progress, potential discharge late today!!! I definitely have my fingers crossed!! We're both passed ready to be home!!
Sunday PMHis blood count has fallen to 7/19. No discharge today! He will be getting a transfusion and we'll just have to wait and see what the next blood count shows. Usually one unit will raise the blood count by about 3. I hope and pray this will put a little pep back in his step! He really feels bad and even said today he didn't feel like he could go home. Knowing him, you know that's not a good sign! It seems his pain is a little better, his output and ambulation have been great! I definitely think him being "a quart low" has knocked him down! So we will remain here, watching and waiting...
Keep praying for Justin, Kerry and Rachel.Not a lot has changed today. The transfusion is complete, blood has been drawn and we're waiting for results. He says he feels a little bit better, but not much. His color is a little improved. I'm hoping tomorrow we are able to see the real results of the blood! He managed to get his 3 walks in today only to be followed by extreme fatigue which takes several hours to recoup. In the meantime please continue to keep us all in your prayers.
