Marginally Better

We are still waiting for word from the liver transplant team. Joey is doing much better today than he was yesterday; that said, he still isn’t doing very well. The fluid that was sampled from his abdomen earlier in the week hasn’t shown signs of infection so far. That’s good. His belly is still very distended and he is still in pain, although it is slightly less than yesterday. Pain meds are being reintroduced slowly so that his body has time to process them. Most importantly, he is more coherent than yesterday and can actually wake up. Critical care is no longer involved, but are available if things head south again.

So things are better, but still not great. Several members of the crew are now in town: Siarah, Karley, Poppa Randy, Momma R and Daddy G. Big sigh of relief.

    You don’t know me but we must have mutual friends because I ended up on Joey’s FB page. We moved down here to Mission from Powell River almost 3 years ago. I understand it is Joey’s birthday on Tuesday. What kind of cheer would you and Joey like?
