Hello Everyone!! Well, as I promised you all an update. Bob is hanging in there! We went and finally had the draining procedure Monday afternoon. They were disappointed that they couldn't drain more fluid as there was only about a gatorade bottle in there. Most of the bloating is from his liver and spleen. We saw his Dr. today and he scheduled a CT Scan on Monday morning at 8:00am. We will see him the following day with the results. Bob's jawndess is getting worse and his urine is getting very dark now.
Bob and I were talking on our way home and he said that he wants to still fight but it is getting harder and harder to do. I told him just take one day at a time and we will get through this no matter what the outcome. I am afraid that he doesn't have the strength anymore to give it his all. I don't want to push him if it is not what he wants. I had to contro my reaction once we got to the Dr.'s office and got into the bright light and realized how much the jawndess had increased in just a couple of days. Our house is usually dark so it is hard to tell sometime. I'm glad that there wasn't any mirrors in the room so that Bob couldn't see himself. I am so hoping that this Thanksgiving is everything that he wants it to be!!!!
I am so sorry that I never seem to have any good news to give anyone anymore. Hopefully that will change even if it is a little bit.
I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!! I am so thankful to all of you for being there for Bob and I!!!! Thank You!!!!
Best Wishes and Prayers to everyone!!!!
