I am so tired of being scared right now.

So far what the Dr's have feared:

The cancer went to Daniels brain.  Thank god it didn't.

Daniel had brain clots.  Thank god he doesn't.

Daniel had blood in one of his lungs.  Thank god he is better.

Daniel has kidney damage due to chemo.  Thank god it is getting better.

Daniel was on the verge of liver failure.  We are watching this closely his liver is improving  but still damaged.

Daniel has a hole in his intestine.  So far they are not as concerned as they once were but they are monitoring it.

Now yesterday they did a sonogram of Daniels heart.  We were told it looked OK but last night at 8 pm they had a heart Dr come in and tell us they found fluid around his heart and they had to do another sonogram.  when they did it they found more fluid than that morning.  His heart rate is usually 120  or higher so they are concerned now that his heart is under to much stress.  they will have to do more tests to see what is going on.  The Dr's said that it might be because he is fighting something but every specialist we see all say that Daniels body can not withstand chemo.

 

we were supposed to start chemo today but (it has now been 2 1/2 weeks since the last chemo)but Daniel has a fever of 102.8 so no chemo. 

We are praying that today will be a better day
