Things weren't as great as we'd hoped for at the appointment today. There is certainly progress. He's been UP more today. The drainage has slowed. I got some really good shots of the drain without the dressing...but again we'll save the really gruesome photos for Michael's upcoming story. LOL
|He ASKED if I had my camera, I would have forgotten|
His liver numbers are going down, though still not normal. This is good.
His pancreas number is still rising.
Another number is rising but I can't remember it's name, it would indicate stones or a clogged bile duct.
He still has the drain in case they need to do another "procedure" - not happy words.
He's lost 10 more pounds and Zander told him he looks like a skeleton.
|Look close - see the drain pinned to the shirt?|
Oh, and he has a marvelously hoarse voice - from being intubated. This should go away with time.
Your continued prayers are appreciated......and after such a big day....Zander, Stacia and I are watching "What's in the Bible - Vol 6," the older kids are at Youth Group, and Michael is wiped out.
Living all of life before the face of God...
