Chemo coming......

We are speaking with Dr. Bonis RIGHT NOW who is working extremely hard to make sure Kevin gets the care he needs asap with no more mishaps. He has spent lots of time making sure that the hospital is prepared to give Kevin his Chemo Friday, Monday, Friday and Monday, to stay on schedule. It appears he will receive chemo tomorrow sometime and then most likely go home either tomorrow or Saturday morning. They have been working on home health care nurses and getting everything prepared for him to come home again and hopefully stay out of the ER for a few more days.

PS After another ultrasound of Kevin's kidneys it appears that he has a 3.37 centimeter mass on one of his kidneys. Most likely myeloma related which is common when you're full of it! It also appears he now has hepatitis B core IGM. 

International Doctors: It has been an interesting ride here at TCCH because we have had doctors from around the world. The Hospitalist last week was from Morocco, this week from Syria, and the kidney doc is from the Ukraine. 


  1. That's really interesting that you have such a variety of doctors. You really have to listen closely to understand foreigners!

  2. Wow, what a roller coaster. I hate roller coasters. Let us know if you need anything when you get home, we can run to town and bring you anything you need.
