Potentially good news! The chief resident came and talked to us today and said right now things look good for his discharge tomorrow morning. We are trying to stabilize his electrolytes, which she thinks can be handled by the morning. He is getting a blood transfusion today, because his Hct is low and they believe that will lower his heart rate and fix a lot of the things. Transfusions are usually an outpatient procedure so doing this should not affect our discharge. I am hoping to see a lot of improvements from it! His feedings seem to be going pretty well now that they changed his tube into his Jejunum. His ANC and PLTS have actually gone up a bit and his tummy pain is subsiding. Things are looking up for his appearance at the "event" but we still need prayers! Every prayer helps!
