Tami has looked so much better the last 2 days. Monday she looked better, but had an N-G tube in, which she hated. It drained more than a liter of bilious contents from a distended stomach. Two things were better, but now one was not. No one likes a tube through their nose into their stomach. She did not diverge from that significant consensus. It sucks. Yesterday at around 12:30 Dr Munnangi put in a PEG tube. A few hours later when Tami was feeling pressure it was resolved by simply hooking the tube up to intermittent low suction. Immediate relief. She still has some pain, but many of the things that were adding to the misery are now improved on. She even smiled, multiple times, and no grump. Tami is faithful in her earnest hope for her miracle, as are we, so while we are fiercely facing off in the middle of the storm, our feet are firmly planted, and our countenance is determinedly set.
No fear. She even had enough strength to miss Ryne. So, look out Devil. Tami is partway back.
Ryne is knowing and recognizing his mom is not home. He has been tight and more difficult to get engaged in what we want him to do. He seems at doing what he wants to do though, and is strong in doing it. If only we could hear his testimony!
A special thank you to Souzas who brought us dinner, allowing more time with Tami and more attention to Ryne.
