Golf’s on

Allow me to elaborate. He’s at VGH (they can’t do ERCPs in PR). Nothing was found means that they didn’t find any stones (which are usually the culprit when his liver enzymes are out of whack and he’s yellow). There were also no signs of infection found. Apparently though, you can only see the lower bile ducts with an ERCP, so next week they are going to do a test called an MCRP (we’re told this is kind of like an MRI) to see if anything is visible in the upper ducts. Hopefully that will give some answers about what is actually going on with his liver. He’s out of emergency and on a ward now, but no tests will be happening until sometime next week.

We oscillate between feeling really bad and doing all right. Yesterday was the first day in quite a long time that he seemed to be in okay spirits (not bouncing off the walls, but doing okay). He’s frustrated, but not currently in pain and is feeling like now that we’re here and this is being looked into, we’re finally going to get some answers about what’s going on. Hopefully once we find that out, they can come up with a plan about how to make him feel better. Plus, golf is on today. Yip-freaking-pee. (Seriously though, it makes him happy).

That’s the skinny. Most likely won’t be posting again until late on Monday, if we find anything out by then. Will update as I get new info.
