Got the low down from the Ward doctor and staff nurse on my way in. Colin's Creatinine level is still very high but is slowly decreasing. Ward doctor hopeful this will reduce to a more normal level over the next 2 days and is confident dialysis won't be required (altho' I don't know if the Renal doctor necessarily agrees).
Also Colin and I were able to have a lengthy discussion with the Consultant Haematologist's Registrar about the situation. He thinks Colin's current issues may be as a result of the renal failure. He mentioned that a Multi-Disciplinary Team meeting would discuss Colin's case and decide any future treatment - this would take into account Colin's reaction to the treatment which the Registrar hadn't seen before in other patients. Any future Chemo, if agreed to, would not start until Colin's body has recovered sufficiently and his blood levels are back to normal. After seeing the Registrar Colin underwent a renal ultrasound and the results were reported later as being normal.
Colin appears to be eating better today - he had roast chicken for dinner and ate well for tea - I had taken in some real wholemeal bread for him to accompany his soup which he said made a change from the hospital 'brown' bread!
