Good News: Nothing is blocked or appears impacted. All of his incisions and staples look great. His catheter placement looks great. There is no fluid around his heart or lungs. All of his organs are where they should be and appear as they should.
Bad News: His X-rays proove that he certainly should feel as bad as he does. He has a lot of stuff in there that needs to come out.
Diagnosis: Keep doing what we are doing. He will feel better soon.
He is tired and worn out. I am getting more and more smiles out of him each day. I think his incisions are feeling quite a bit better. I can see him deflate every time a blood test reveals that he needs another injection or daily med. I just try to remind him that he has a couple organs not working at all. They have to use meds to replace those functions in his body. Thank God we have this option. Thank God we have nurses and doctors staying on top of all of this. One day at a time.
