Scratch that.

Just had a call from Mike. They've decided he had better stay in as his kidneys haven't returned to normal.

Oh and as much as I love you all, if anyone else says "best to be on the safe side" I will scream.

  1. I am sorry Lorna. Did they mention how bad the kidneys are or any mention of dialysis or just a small rise in creatinine?

  2. Creatinine has been rising steadily over the weeks. I mentioned it to one of the doctors two weeks ago and they shrugged their shoulders and said it's common with myeloma patients. It is now nearly double the normal upper limit. (We use different measures over here, normal max 120, Mike's 220)

  3. "Common" is not a reasonable answer. The body does have its way of sending signals and in my humble opinion it is time to push for a better answer to that kind of rise.
    I know you are frustrated -- just know we are out here intending and praying for you two.

  4. How scary and how frustrating. We are thinking of you.

  5. I have absolutely no idea how I missed this post. Mind you I did text my Auntie Ann 'Happy Birthday to you and Ben' on Wednesday and she didn't get it so goodness knows who it went too! What a sod - about Mike not the text! x

  6. Ugh. How disappointing to think you're going home and then not. Lorna, have they ever tested Mike for amyloid? I know it's a scary thought
    but in addition to affecting the kidneys, I think
    it can also affect the tongue. Praying for you both!
