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!
