Blood Transfusion

The plan is for Joey to be air ambulanced to Vancouver either tonight or in the wee hours of tomorrow. They did some blood work this morning and his INR is high (which apparently means his blood is too thin right now for them to do an ERCP). They are giving him a blood transfusion today to try and correct this. (Plasma only, he thought it was important to mention that it isn’t whole blood…that makes a difference to everyone reading this, right?) Hopefully that will get sorted out today and they can go ahead and get the stones out tomorrow morning.

I’ll be updating the website as things develop and as I am able. Will keep everyone posted.
