Still here!

They still can't get his sodium stable enough to send him home. They did some other tests and his thyroid levels are off so an endocrinologist will be coming in today to check things out. His Brain Tumor specialist won't be in until tomorrow, so I imagine we will be here tomorrow as well. What he has is cranial salt wasting and for some reason his body is getting rid of more salt than what he should be. His vision is worse now than before and can't see much at all, so he has been wearing an eyepatch of some kind to help. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of it soon. It is getting realy old for him and all of us. He just wants to come home.

I've been reading about Marcus on Nancy's blog, this is the first time I've visited, although I've heard a lot about your family. Keep the faith, Marcus! You're so brave and you have my total admiration. Stay strong!

Oh my GOSH! I hope he's home now, and that he can tolerate the chemotherapy a bit better next round. Are his symptoms mostly chemo related? I can empathize with the Endocrine issues. Who is he seeing? Matt's endocrinologist is Dr.Donaldson.
