Patrick Henry's Journal
Waiting and watching
Written Oct 18, 2013 7:57amSo I'm sitting in the sauna at the gym cuz I needed to express some frustration...we were told it is prob the meds for the pneumonia. Which I don't understand...though I am grateful they don't feel any anxiety over his symptoms. We were told to just watch him. ..he was def more normal this morning when I woke him up which is relieving bc yesterday he was very confused. Anyway we will just keep an eye on him for now
Loss of bladder control
Written Oct 16, 2013 9:03amSo we are sitting at UNC in the cancer clinic...last night Patrick was working on his homework when out of nowhere he lost control of his bladder and peed on the floor and chair...I then noticed his eyes going back and forth really fast so now here we are. We are hopeful this is not going to be anything crazy but this sort of issue does indicatebthat there could be something neurological or spinal in nature so were going to get him checked out by the experts and go from there.
Written Oct 9, 2013 10:23amHey all, I apologize for being off the grid with Patrick's update after scans...I have been suffering with a migraine since before scans began. But the good news is that scans were perfect! He does have a touch of pneumonia but otherwise no cancer and that is amazing...we are so blessed. I will ask that you say a prayer for Patrick's brother Collin. He just finished over 5 years of chemo for relapsed Leukemia and his last bone marrow biopsy showed some wonky cells in there. We are hoping that is just him having tired bone marrow, but we will find out for sure on October 29th with a repeat bone marrow biopsy. I hope you will keep him and us all in your prayers. We love you all and hope you will stick with us through this journey. Love and hugs!
