Sunday Oct 23 He's Home!!

He's home...He actually got home yesterday afternoon, but I didn't think about posting until late last night, and I was exhausted so I put it off until today.  We had some difficulty managing his pain at home.  They put him on a different oral pain killer than what he was on at the hospital, and it didn't work nearly as well.  We ended up contacting the on call Dr., and got a prescription for what he was taking before.  It works much better.  So now it's just taking it as slow as Boyce will allow, and getting a little stronger every day.  It's hard, practically impossible, for me to believe that they actually send people home the day after they remove a kidney.  If he had gone home the next day, we would have been in serious trouble.  I can honestly say that those 4 days in the hospital felt more like 4 weeks.  We will be setting up the post-op appt with the surgeon for sometime this week, and setting up an appt with a Mayo oncologist as well.  Thanks again for all the prayers and love you have shown us.  We are thanking God, and celebrating Boyce being cancer free!


  1. Thank you posting your journey! I love and miss you guys!! I will continue to pray for Boyce, you and the kids!

  2. Jen,
    Thank you so much for journaling your heart through this crazy-hard experience. I would LOVE it if you would continue, even just your day-to-day are as clever in written form as you are in the flesh :-) Much love and warmth your way!
