Well, well, well...
Just when everything looks bleak, and it is the darkest and coldest of the night, a ray of sunshine peeks through around the corner of our discontent. Since Tami had the PEG tube placed there has been no emesis. In what has been suctioned there is no bile and no blood! Her pain is better. First her glucoses were high and they were having to give insulin, and then they went so low (30’s) when off j-tube feedings that she was hallucinating. Yesterday the glucose levels were normal all day. She is no longer sleeping all day. Yesterday Tami went to have her stereotactic radiation therapy, and when Dr Gallardo set up the treatment and looked at the CT he said the tumor had shrunk visibly, and in only 2 weeks. He was impressed. So, with three tubes and perhaps a little uncertainty, Tami is coming home maybe today. We have a ways to go, but maybe the trip home will be easier than the climb up..
Ryne was awesome last night with PT. I had advised Ryne yesterday morning that he had better do something productive or Bob was going to tire of futility. Ryne did! He was focused, for him, and had better control, and gave great effort.
What a day for us.
See. Prayer works!
Thank you so much Erica Boland & Adrian and Nathan Porter for a great dinner. We are always blessed by such grace. Cale and Ariana put up and decorated our tree. It’s beginning to look a “little more” like Christmas.
