On Tuesday Fletcher will start the Padmidronate infusion therapy. They will do blood work on Monday and if everything looks good especially his electrolytes they will be ready to start bright and early on Tuesday. Since this will be his first attempt with Padmidronate they will do blood work every two hours and if I understand it correctly the infusion will be over a twelve hour period once a week for three weeks. Dr. Brannon is being very cautious, this type of therapy is usually done in three days over a six hour period each day repeating it every three months until they have the desired results. Dr. Brannon is sure Fletcher is already experiencing bone pain and that is one of the side effects of Padmidronate they will give him tylenol before they start and as needed during the next few days. We're hoping that the Padmidronate will eventually decrease the bone pain and give him back some of the bone density he has lost. Would you all please be praying for Fletcher these next few day? It's hard to watch him be uncomfortable but it's for his best. Craig and I have a complete peace about going through with this therapy. I will keep you posted on how it's going.
Yesterday Maddie and I went to a baby shower for my niece, Amber. She is having baby number three and it's a girl. Her name will be Kate Olivia and she will have two great big brothers to help care for her. We're very excited for Amber and Matt and can't wait to meet that sweet baby!
