I "LOVE" sharing good news!!!!! It was a LAB ERROR!!!!!!!! Or better yet, OUR PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED!!!! Today's results were < 150!!!!!!
The night before any test that could potentially change our future forever, is always an emotional night. Camden's appointment is at 11:40 tomorrow. We will be there around 11:00. Please at that time tomorrow, lift Camden in prayer for nothing but good results. We can do this Crusaders. We have witnessed many miracles in the past 15 months. Where there are 2 or more gathered in prayer....the faith of a mustard seed, seek and you shall find, ask and you shall receive, knock and a door will be opened...
So tonight I send out a prayer request. Camden's lab results from today's clinic appointment all looked good, except for the DDimer (which tells us what his blood clot is doing and his risk for a pulmonary embolism). At diagnosis of the blood clot he was a 407. Since then he has dropped to 202 (which falls within the normal range). While tracking these numbers, we were told it would be alarming if the number exceeded 1,500. Today's lab result was 3,000. We are praying that this is a lab error. He is asymptomatic of any alarming problems. We will redo his labs on Thursday. If the results remain elevated then we will do a repeat Echo. This will allow us to make appropriate treatment decisions. I feel like we have to kick it up a notch with our prayers for Cam. Lets not forget the beast we are fighting against. In conclusion of reading this, I ask that you say a prayer for Camden: for the results to be an error, that Camden's body has completely reabsorbed the blood clot and that Camden will remain in remission for a cancer free lifetime of health and happiness. Please give us an Amen in the comments. Thank you....
We had an amazing day. Thank you for sharing in our day. Thank you for surrounding us with so much love and happiness!! Thank you for your support! Thank you with all of our hearts! You would never believe in 1 million years, that I did not take ONE picture yesterday! I guess I was too busy! As pictures start coming in, I will be sure to share them with you!!! Much Love
So excited for today! Nothing can take away the joy of seeing Camden and Emma smile. We ended up with 330 registered crusaders. We cannot wait to see you all!! Thank you for choosing to be part of our special day! And the setup begins!!!
So Camden's 4 incisions from his line removal surgery are still healing. The incisions themselves look great. The sutures are dissolvable. BUT...there is a knot and small strand of suture on both ends of the incision. His oncologist told me yesterday that the skin will act as scissors and cut that strand and the knot, etc will fall off when completely healed. Today one end looks slightly inflamed and red. Praying it is his body trying to eliminate the "foreign" suture.... Praying it is not a sign of infection. We have had sooo many surgeries and sutures and I never recall those strands sticking out. I put Bacitracin on it....i guess we will see what happens. No infection, no infection, no infection....please and thank you Lord!
These two sure do have their "sibling" moments...but there is no denying their love for each other. I truly believe with all my heart that they will always be best friends!
She's going to keep everyone up to date about my progress. Isn't she the best mommy ever?
