Colton, was a very healthy 2 1/2 year old little boy, On Thursday August 11th, we notcied Colton was not feeling well. We went to children's memorial hospital on Monday August 15th for fluids. After about an hour the Dr. came back again to let us know that Colton was going to be flown by helicopter to Children's hospital in Aurora Colorado because his lab values were showing he was in Kidney failure. (Creatinine and potassium were at a 9). Colton received one round of dialysis and then was brought down that night for a Cat-scan. then we would have to wait till morning for results.
As the PICU doctors made rounds they came and updated us on Colton's prognosis, he had 2 large masses in his belly and a bunch of small ones and he would have to go into surgery that day to also get stints into his ureters (kidneys) to try to regain kidney function back. When he went into surgery they took a small piece of the mass to biopsy to tell us what kind of cancer we are dealing with...
Colton was diagnosed with a cancer called neauroblastoma that is either stage 3 or stage 4 cancer. We were told that his chances of recovery are at a 60%-70%. Colton will be receiving several rounds of chemotherapy and we are looking at a very long road ahead of us. We ask for all the prayers we can get and if possible, a donation of any amount to help with our pending hospital bills.
