Hello everyone,

We are on our 7th day at MUSC and we still do not have any answers. The test that was sent to Salt Lake City has still not come back. The Dr. told us today right now the only explanation he has for the recurrent pleural effusions is cancer, but there is no evidence of cancer in Pelhams case. Once the results are all back, they will make a decision whether or not to do the second pleurodesis. Pelham was able to walk a little ways down the hall today without labored breathing so that’s an accomplishment. Everyday we hope that will be the day for good news. Pelhams father and stepmother was here yesterday and today and Pel was so glad to see them. If anyone has been trying to call him, we discovered today that the ringer on his phone was turned off. So we turned it on and he is in room 1059 at MUSC. He said he would be glad to talk, but if he did not answer, he was either gone for another test or too short of breath to talk. He wants everyone to know how much he appreciates the prayers and concerns. We know several people has come to Charleston to visit and was told he was not here, we are not sure why, but thank goodness they called us on our cell phone and directed to his room. He enjoyed the visits. He is presently on isolation for a hospital acquired infection he tested positive for in Feburary of this year, however, you can still visit as long as you wash your hands good when entering and leaving the room. He is negative now, but has to have 3 negatives before taking him off isolation. I will update you as soon as we know any information. Thanks,

Claire
