Update on Sue Brooks.....

Miss MaryMiss Mary Senior MemberPosts: 737 Senior Member

Talked to Elvan yesterday evening, Sue had stents put in between her kidneys and bladder to try to make the numbers on her lab work start improving. She is home and had a fairly uncomfortable weekend but seems some better. She had to have labs done on Tuesday and they found her potassium way too high so had to have IV's Tuesday and Wednesday to try to get that back down. Possibly get chemo on Friday if her numbers allow it. This chemo is supposed to be milder than her other was and not as long to infuse. Her sprits are still good but Elvan sounds pretty wasted, afraid he isn't taking care of himself as well as he needs to be but can understand how hard it is to handle everything.

Prayers continue and will update anytime I hear form them.

    I had stent with kidney stones several times, and they are no fun. They can poke and hurt, so I get that discomfort all too well. Hope the new chemo is milder, and kinder to her system. And faster infusion time will help with that discomfort.
    Elvin is probably running himself ragged taking care of Sue. Hope he can get some rest, and some relief, too.
    And prayers from the ridges continue. Hoping for Sue to kick the C's butt, too, and get back to normal.

    Everything Mike said.
    Prayers out to both Elvan and Sue. This is a rough road but we're all praying for a good outcome.
    God bless the entire family.

    Thanks for the update, Mary.  I texted him just before I left the country to see how things were going.  He definitely seemed pretty exhausted, and understandably so.
