Alan had been complaining most of last week with some abdominal pain, but started thinking it was some new meds he had recently started taking, so he made a Dr. appt for Friday just to see. The Dr. noticed a low red blood count and basically Alan just really did not look good and had also been pretty sluggish lately. Doc put him in the hospital for a blood transfusion, blood work and an Endoscopy. We were all thinking ulcers in his stomach, which he did have...8 of them, so that was what we thought was the reason for the low blood count! Doc still wanted to do more testing, so he did a colonoscopy and that came back clear also. So, Doc wanted to do a CAT scan just to be sure and that is when he saw the tumor on his kidney. Needless to say we are all in shock, well, that doesn't even explain what I'm feeling. No words can really explain what I'm feeling at the moment. Actually I think I'm just numb...we all are and extremely concerned and worried about Alan. I think the only reason I'm posting this tonight is just for therapy, so please do not think it petty of me to post this today. I needed it. Please remember my family in your prayers. We go back for a CT scan tomorrow at the hospital and then we will see Dr. Mooney at Arkansas Urology in Little Rock. It's pretty certain that Alan will have surgery this week to have the kidney and tumor removed and we will go from there. I'm sure I've forgotten details, but I'm tired.
Thank you in advanced for your calls and prayers!
We love you!!
I will try to update as I can.
