We are officially just waiting for a bed to open up at Northwestern for Kenny to move to. The doctor that we are working with there will review Kenny's most recent MRI and CT and do any other necessary tests with him and he could have surgery as early as Friday to begin the process of removing the tumor. We need to discuss specifics with him to make sure we are comfortable with his approach, but we were before and he didn't seem to us that he is a "surgery-happy" kind of guy. I'm not sure how much time we have to make this decision (in terms of the speed of the growth of the tumor, the fluid on the brain and what else the tumor is affecting)...and that is one of the many questions that we need to work through with him once we get to Northwestern.
I spoke to the nurse at 5am and Kenny had a good night. He got lots of sleep, which is good because he's only been able to sleep about 15 minutes at a time. The nurse kicked me out to get really sleep in my bed about 1130pm and he had been sleeping well last night when I was with him. The nurse said he was up a few times and is still getting up to go to the bathroom well without dizziness and is moving really well. He has also had two meals now that have sat well with his stomach. He actually asked for Coke with dinner last night. :) She said he talked about how good I am to him and how much he loves Charlie and she was impressed with his sweet words and how with it he is. She said the confusion in dates and times and what all is going on that we see (and scares me a little), is really minor given everything he has and is going through.
Pray for a call soon from Northwestern that we can start moving down there so we can start getting answers and working on making Kenny better.
