Out and about…

Crystal got out of the hospital on Tuesday. Because of her hospital stay they pushed her second round of chemo back a week. Thinking of doing another vlog post. I haven’t got any feedback about the first one yet.

Pneumonia without the symptoms…???

The night of my video post Crystal went to the ER with a 102 temp. It is now Saturday and we are still here. The Docs say maybe Monday we can go home. They did a chest x-ray and it showed that she has Pneumonia, with no other symptoms. They did a CT of her chest and lungs. The CT won’t be reviewed nor will the blood work be back till Monday.

I went in Friday for a root canal. My tooth and jaw are sore and now having shooting pains every now and then. The Dentist did give me some Hydrocodone. I’m going back in Monday morning see if they can relieve the pressure.

I wanna do another vlog. What do you think?

We now have internet at home.

We got internet hooked up at out house. Thanks Internet Nebraska. Crystal starts Chemo on Thursday. We got a new pet Turtle named Maxine.  I found her in the parking lot at work. Our friend Liz tells us its a female painted turtle. I’ll try to get a picture of Maxine posted.

Now that we have Internet back I’m going to try to post more often. Hopefully more interesting stuff will happen to write about,  or I’m going to have to just talk about what I think is interesting, and hopefully not bore and/or drive off to many readers. For now that’s about it.

Till next time…

Our talk with the fertility Dr. and trip to Kanas City

The fertility Dr. said it would be very dangerous. The type of cancer Crystal has feeds off Estrogen. To do IVF the Dr would have to raise Crystal’s estrogen level ten times what it is naturally, twice. We also think this is why her cancer grew during the pregnancy.   Right now we’re praying about it and putting it in God’s hands.

After we saw the Dr. we decided to visit Big K-Mart. Which was right off the interstate. For some reason our GPS wanted us to drive through the middle of Kansas City to get us home after Big K instead of putting us on the interstate hi-way, the way we got to Big K. So the drive home took an hour longer than planed. I think its time to do some firmware and map updates to our GPS unit. Maybe I’ll even splurge and get a celebrity voice.

Till next time…

Dinner with Dad.

Crystal thought the consult was pointless. The Plastic surgeon. didn’t remove her tube. He just looked at her and said He and the cancer surgeon would have to have a consult before they could schudel  the follow-up surgery. He would call us. 

Dinner with Dad and Cheryl was very tasty. We ate at Tish’s. I had a Five Alarm Burger. Crystal had the Chicken Alfredo  Dad also had a Five Alarm Burger and Cheryl had the Montery Chicken. 

Till next time…

Crystal’s Cancer Surgery- Day 5

 It is Tuesday and we are still in the hospital. The pathology report hasn’t come back yet. They were gonna let us go monday, Crystal felt some pain in her chest so they wanted us to stay another day to make sure the pain was just from the surgery and not something worse.  Maybe tonight or tomorrow we can go home.
