Back in the hospital
Curtis was re-admitted to the hospital yesterday. We went to the ER yesterday morning because he was not having any output in his bag for almost 30 hours. (Normally, he empties 6 times per day). They did a CT scan and it showed he has a 4.5 cm blockage behind his stoma. He was also dehydrated which may have contributed to the blockage. We get to go home this afternoon because his bag is working again now. We have a busy couple weeks with Huntsman. Tomorrow we go meet with the radiation oncologist, Chris Anker, and they figure out where exactly they will target the radiation. Then he will surgery to have his port placed. Tuesday we go back to Huntsman for the PET scan. Thursday we go to Huntsman again to finalize chemotherapy, and Friday he will have a rectal ultrasound. Here are some pics of Tavner's visit and him trying out Curtis' breathing spirometer.
