No chemo today.. Bilirubin up even more
Curtis' bilirubin is up to 8.9 this morning. The plan is that he will go in for the "stent procedure" again (endoscopy) to try and figure out if the stent they put in had moved, if there is a new blockage, or if a larger stent is needed.. Or some suprise we don't yet know about. The plan so far is to have this done Wednesday. Curtis has now been 6 weeks without chemo. This is making us all nervous. You wouldn't ever think that you would need to pray that someone could just get their chemo.. This is getting to be very frustrating to us.. He had a really rough night last night vomiting through the night and this morning. But, he has been able to eat since about noon today and keeping it down. We wanted chemo to be on Mondays, since it is weekly now, we thought it would give him more quality time with Tavner on our weekends, but it might take a few weeks to get to that schedule. Hopefully, he can start the new chemo later this week if his bilirubin drops enough. They like it to be less than 3 for the Irrinotecan chemotherapy.
