May 11 – No Surgery Today

We ended up bringing Brandon to the hospital after 9:00 last night because he was not doing well. His doctor admitted him and put him on IV fluids to help with the nausea and cramping. They ran labs last night, and his creatinine (kidney value) was more elevated. They think that’s due to dehydration.

They brought us to pre-op around 6:00 am and began prepping him for a 7:45 surgery. However, his surgeon just came in and said they ran labs again this morning, and the values were slightly higher again. The fluids haven’t reversed it yet. Rather than do the surgery today and risk further kidney damage, he has decided to postpone it until Monday and keep him in the hospital over the weekend to see if the kidney numbers stabilize. He said he will do the surgery on Monday, but it won’t be first thing and Brandon won’t be the only one on the schedule that day. We will update more later today.
