thomas news

Thomas is showing signs of renal failure. At least, he’s behaving exactly like he did before he received his diagnosis in ’02. He was sitting in class Friday having chills and tremblors, and his teacher sent him to the office, who called his Grandma Jane (who was in Connecticut at the time). A dicussion with Dr Goebel sent Thomas straight to the emergency room for blood work and put Thomas on bed rest.

His white blood cell count is still high (as is his blood pressure), and his creatinine levels have gone up.

So they’re on their weay to see Dr Goebel in Cincinnati. They’re going to do a biopsy tomorrow to make sure the donor kidney isn’t the one causing the problems.

I likely won’t have any news at all until Tuesday or later.

I’ve cross-posted this all over. If anyone knows of anywhere I’ve not posted it, please by all means post it for me? Thanks!
