Cancer Center -- lab work

We saw Nurse Practitioner Kathy Breaker again today.

Good news: PSA is now down to 1.45. That is cause to celebrate!!!!!

However, the lab work showed that Marshall was very dehydrated and his kidney function was suffering. So they hooked him up to IV to hydrate him before we left the Center and we have to come back next week for another kidney function test. He was also instructed to drink 80 ounces of water a day from here on out.

In addition, there were issues with his hemoglobin. I kind of got lost on that one, but she said his blood was more pink than red. She is going to ask the oncologist what he wants to do in that regard and she will talk to us about it next week when we come back.

All in all, though, a really good visit.
