Hump Day

2:30 pm

It doesn’t look like we will be going home just yet. Shannon developed a blood clot in his leg amongst all of the other excitement going on.  On the plus side his numbers are improving!

GFR is back up to 27! Creatinine is back down to a 2.62! Woo hoo! Going in the right direction, but they still want more change. They have bounced back and forth about the biopsy, but it sounds like the nephrology team won that battle.

They now have him on a Heparin drip for the blood clots and then we will go from there.  It was exciting to see him eat again!   And he is able to drink water non-stop again.  It may not sound like we are over the hump, but from our perspective feels like we are moving forward at least.
