Michael's Appointment

Today was Michael's follow up.  

Lots to rejoice about: 

  • Staples removed
  • Liver numbers NORMAL
  • JP drain removed
  • Christian Doc who cares
  • She said to pray - we can do that! 
  • Dear friends who are nurses and assure this is "within normal" for post op. 
Prayer Request
  • Enzymes to do with pancreas are still increasing (lipase and amylase)
  • Michael's not showing many symptoms - we're monitoring
  • He's 2 weeks post op - this is still within believable for surgery trauma
  • We'll recheck labs in a week
My Thoughts
Obviously, I'd prayed all numbers would be normal. I'm praising God for the improvement and believing the pancreas numbers will improve shortly. I'm also well aware of the symptoms I'm to monitor. I will  be watching Michael's diet to limit insulin dumps and pancreas stress. Poor man - I knew one way or another he'd eventually go crunchy. LOL 

Michael's happy to lose his travel buddy ::snort:: 

Michael's Thoughts
Dr. appointment today. Pancreas numbers are still up, but liver is good. The Doc said she was yanking out the drain today. I am thinking this is figurative. Nope. Nothing figurative about it. The best way to describe is OWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!! I may be understating it, though. Another follow-up next week. Prayer is appreciated. 

Choosing Joy!

Well, I had something nice and neat (in my opinion) written but the robots didn't like me so here goes in brief......PTL and Mike Yank sound yucky also! PTL for all the steps forward and praying for total healing soon. Praying for poor MIke as he has to not have anything delicious that would cause an "insulin dump"! :):):):) Sis you are such a good cook that it will taste good anyway. love/prayers mom t.
