News update Its been a long time since I posted news. Well I'm still here. Been waiting for transplant. My health really slipped down hill since July. I am in bed for about 16 hours a day. I just don't have any energy. My memory keeps slipping away due to my illness. Some days I have trouble typing.
Well here's a short update, I have been tested for cancer and found none. That's the good news. My computer crashed and I had to get a new one. I've been seeing both of my doctors on a very regular basis. My kidney is blearily hanging on. I'm still on a lot of pain medication. Kristina, my daughter got married on November 24. 2 days before her wedding I had a liver offer, however I could not take it. All my autos have been acting up and costing me a lot of money just trying to keep them on the road. My finances have hit rock bottom as the only income I now have is social security disability. We made it threw the holidays. My mothers Alzheimer has gotten worse and we were forced to send her off to a nursing facility. It was to much for the family to bear. The best thing of all, I was able to put my 1995 Chrysler lebaron on the road. Its getting a new top and a set of tires and It will be ready to sell.
Well enough for now. Sorry It took so long to respond.

news update July 23, 2012 News Update July 23, 2012
Its been a few weeks since I last updated my blog. During this time a lot has been happening.
I checked in the Emergency room on the on the 9th for severe pain in my abdomen. I spent a week and went home on the 14th. During my stay I found out that my blood scores were getting quite high, however the processed sodium level was to low. The doctors took many tests, and discovered that I still had a growth restricting the artery supplying fresh blood to my lower extremities and organs. I was taken off the active organ call listing until at which time cancer was ruled out. My colon was still inflamed and I was put on antibiotics.
2 liters of fluids were removed from my abdomen to also help with the pain. Because of the changes in my medications and the need to keep toxins drained, my kidney's are now being impacted to the point the damage will be non-reversible unless the medications can improve my condition.
Well after I went home, I received a call from my doctor. He gave me the somewhat distressing news that cancer cannot be ruled out without further tests. In 2 weeks I am scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy to determine and answer. I will also need to have a another scan of my colon, which is a separate issue, to see if there is any tumors present in my colon.
Well enough bad news, on the promising side, after being turned downed for a scholarship for my youngest son from BLOCKS, I was approved for a $2000.00 award to help with the tuition costs. For those that do not know Block scholarships are offered by the local business supporting Catholic education within the community. I was also approved for a wave in premium for my life insurance for my first disability of 2012. Wow we really needed that, any bit counts when your trying to survive on a reduced income.
I have an update as soon as I hear some results from my up and coming tests
