Pelham was moved to med surg floor today. He still has the chest tube in place and is having lots of pain. A nephrologist, Dr. Din was called in today because his kidney function is not very good. He thinks maybe it is caused by the antirejection medications he is taking and the massive fluid volume depletion from the numerous thoracentesis he has experienced the last few weeks. Hopefully the chest tube will be removed tomorrow and he can get up and get moving. He has pain and shortness of breath with the least bit of exertion at this point. Pelham’s strong faith in God and the support and friendship he has with all of you will comfort him and see him through. Keep those prayers coming and Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
