We finally got Kramer’s pain under control to a tolerable level at about 11:00am today. As I write it’s about 3pm. He’s super sleepy now. I think the fight against the pain pooped him out. He says if he stays still the pain is around a 3 on a scale of one to ten. He said he can be content and live with that if he has to but what he had this morning was terrible.
Lindsay his pain doc is awesome. Really awesome. She has been to his room four times today working to get the right combination of meds to help.
Kramer did get better in time to go to radiation. That was a big blessing. As of today he FIVE left. YAHOO!! We are getting so close. I can’t wait.
His best guesstimate as to when we can go home is now on Sunday. He can’t go home until the pain can be controlled on oral medication. Right now the pain is under control but not on oral meds. UGH.
So here’s my report:I did my blood test, and the scan. Then I met with my doctor.
My scan is clear. So that means there is no detectable thyroid cancer. That doesn’t mean it isn’t returning as my blood work indicates it is back. So here I am in limbo land not really knowing. Previously I was going back for testing every six months. This time, with my blood work numbers high, I am returning in September instead of the full six months. That’s okay….I got a reprieve and I am going to take it. I can focus on Kramer for now. That’s what I prayed for.
Some one asked that we put a Paypal button in the right column of the blog. We did. I’ve shown the Paypal balance to Kramer and he is in shock. You guys have blown him away with all the wonderful donations. How blessed we are!! THANKS.
More from here at the hospital at another time.
