Brandon did not feel well at all yesterday. After two days of feeling somewhat decent, he went back to feeling the way he did when he was admitted into the hospital with a slight fever, nausea, cramping and pain. His hemoglobin was low again, so they gave him another unit of blood. One of the doctors said that can sometimes cause the fever. The kidney numbers did go down a bit, which was good news. They decided to run labs and take x-rays again last night since he wasn’t feeling well and make sure he wasn’t fighting some type of infection. He finally felt a little better by bedtime, and they told him at 11:00 last night that he was on the surgery schedule at noon today.
We still weren’t certain that the surgery would take place today because his oncology surgeon needed to take a look at this morning’s lab results and make sure he felt comfortable with today’s numbers. We just got confirmation that he is going to surgery around noon today. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers today! We will post updates as we have them throughout the day.
