Thank you everyone for your messages, love, prayers, and support. I have been sitting with James for about an hour every morning and every evening. As I do, I read him all of his email, over and over again. I stroke his back and talk or read to him.
The consensus is that he has pancreatitis and maybe an abscess – no cancer – which is why we keep fighting. He is on two antibiotics, pepsid, and pain meds. SAT he was a lot worse, so they started him on pred and that has made him feel much better. He is able to lift his head and look around. He can’t stand up. He is eating his cottage cheese and some turkey and chicken.
His WBC is through the roof. He is anemic; we were hoping that it was “regenerative”, but it might not be now.
Dr. Tripp, our oncologist, is back in the hospital today. She has been monitoring his case from home over the holiday. I am back at work today. Will visit again tonight.
