Hello Everyone!!! Thank You again for everything!!! Bob had a better couple of days!!! Thanks to the weather being warmer we were able to get his butt outside for a while!!!! Some of his friends stopped by and helped a lot!!! We got his cars all tuck away for the winter with Bob's help!!! We gave him a job testing and filling anti-freeze. He got a little aggrivated when he could get some of the caps off but neither could I so we made a good team. We even got him on the garden tractor to help pull one of his cars into the shed since he never put breaks on it. That was a job as the back drum locked up on it so between Bob's brother Erv and I we did the pushing and lifting and Bob did the driving. It was really GREAT to see him outside. He is in alot of pain but he still got up and out!!!
We went to the Dr.'s today for the test results and what to do for treatment.The test showed that his liver si starting to fail but they said that it wasn't bad!! He is a little jawdess butr not much. They have stopped his blood thinners so that they can drain the fluid in his belly on Friday. They are only afraid about knicking his intestines. So we are praying for a STEADY HAND!!!
As for the experimental phases that we were hoping for they are a no go right now as do to Bob's activity level and his liver involvement. Bob wasn't to dissappointed as he already realized that it was going to be a long shot now. He was just pissed that they didn't try them earlier. He is doing ok. They have put him on a patch for Pain now to try and help so that he can get around more without to much disscomfort.
So this is a mixed post. WE are giving it the old college try!!! The barn door is still open!!!!
Thank You all for your prayers they are working and please keep them coming!!!!
Love to All!!!!
