Kol is in rough shape right now - over the last 24 to 36 hours, he's been in more pain than usual, and for most of Friday had a constant headache. He wasn't able to keep anything in his system - not even ondansetron (which is an anti-nausea medication).
Kol had an appointment at the Cancer Centre yesterday morning, where he ended up vomiting all over the floor in front of the reception desk. It didn't get much better after that. Kol got some IV fluids, and some IV ondansetron, but it didn't help. Kol had a rough night, and was in a lot of pain. His headache was bad, and nothing would work. It's been better today, but he's lost so much fluid, and he hasn't eaten, so he's getting dehydrated.
Kristen got a call from the pediatric palliative care specialist today (we were supposed to meet with her yesterday, but it didn't happen). She does a lot of work with pain management, and said that she believes Kol is having a "pain crisis" so we discussed pain management strategies. As a result, Kristen is getting ready to take Kol to the hospital in Outlook so he can get some IV fluids, and hopefully, we'll be able to get his pain under control a bit better. We should only be at the hospital for a few hours.
Thank-you for praying for us. If you can make it to the healing service on Friday night, we'd love to see you.
