Requesting Continued Prayers For Gage

Thanks for all the Loving Support and Prayers for Gage…

Update for Saturday February 21, 2015!

Hey Everybody!!! This is a Gage update…

He was admitted to the Hospital on Thursday and kept overnight for his next Chemo Infusion. We were hoping and praying for a quick and easy process, and we got it (Thank you God)! He is struggling a bit with swelling in his legs and cute little face the last couple of days and so we had hoped to find out whether we need to worry about that, but didn’t get an answer. Regardless, Thank you for the prayers that this process would be easier than in the past and that he continues to improve every day.

The IV went in on the first try!!!!! Yay!!

He’s had roughly 9 of them and this is the only one to go right in!! We’re off to a great start! Because his Blood Count is so low, his veins don’t lie to take the needle like normal. This causes a problem when drawing blood and putting the IV’s in.

When his Blood Results came back, his Creatine (kidney function) is getting better!! It was at 2.7 last week and 2.4 today (It should be at .5 so we still have a way to go)!!! His blood count went up a little too! 9.5 Versus 9.3 last week. A smidge closer to the 14 it is supposed to be at!!! This is all good news!

We don’t think the swelling is abnormal for what’s going on.

They are more worried about the occasional high blood pressure that’s happening with it all. So they are adding high blood pressure medicine (as needed) to his array of meds. He will continue to get the shots to increase his blood count every couple of weeks (Krista gets to give him shots at home). He had to get one before he went home from the Hospital on Friday. They seem to be working a little! Since his levels are slowly creeping up.

According to Krista under the circumstances Gage is doing really well! I think he’s bored and sick of hospital food and we are all REALLY tired. Ultimately though he’s good!

Gage, Krista, Travis and Jazmin have felt much love through the support and Prayers from everyone. This has been a scary, hard and painful journey with Gage. His recovery from the Kidney Damage has come slower than we thought and would like, but it IS slowly coming!

God Is Amazing

I said a Prayer For You

Even though the progress has been relatively slow but steady, we know God is there holding their hands.

The Lord holds us in his firm and loving grip. They have an army of friends who are standing with them, an army who is traveling with them on this journey (yup, that’s you).

For that they are truly grateful. Thank you!!

  1. Praying, praying, praying for Gage and all of you. After I read this post I went back through your “medical” category to get the back story on what has brought him to this point. As a mom of four, one of which is 17 years old, I immediately thought how I would feel having him go through what you all are experiencing right now. Know that even though we’ve never met, your story has touched me and I will continue to send good vibes your way. Stay strong. ((hugs))

    • Thank you sooo much… I apreciate it enormously. It is a very scary thing. His Disease affects 1 in 8 Million. Ugh. They are using him to teach other Doctors and do research at the University of Michigan because it’s so rare.

  2. Definite best thoughts being sent. My creatnine is at 2.4 on good days, 2.7 when I’m a little dehydrated, but that’s still far from dialysis levels. So I’m very glad it is dropping, and also far from the scary range.
