As of today my brother seems to be feeling better.
He had the stitches removed at the site where they put in the feeding tube, he said it was not a pleasant experience.

He feels so much better and he believes it is from that Essiac Tea he is taking and of course the nutrients he is probably now getting through the feeding tube.

Given only a month to live he figures what does he have to lose in trying this herbal tea. There has been a lot of positive testimonials on this tea.
It is all natural and safe to take.

For those of you who have tried everything else it is worthwhile to look into.

Jr. is using the sunction tube less for his saliva so this is a good sign!!
The tea is suppose to get rid of any toxins in the body and is suppose to come out through the bowels but Jr's came out through his throat!!
This is amazing in itself as he has complete blockage in the esophagus but there seems to now be an opening.

He is playing on his keyboard and his pinball machine!

We are all just thankful!

Going to go see Jr. today.

Jr. is just surrounding himself with things that belonged to our dad. Our dad went to Heaven in 2006.
Jr. is also listening to old gospel records (yes, I said records, remember those?) that belonged to my dad and mom.

His blood is low, he may need to get a blood transfusion.

He goes this coming Tuesday for a CT scan and then to his doctor on Wednesday to get the results of that test.

He is in a lot of pain from the incision of the feeding tube, so they increased his pain meds.

He finished his antibiotics that they had him on to keep infection away from the feeding tube.

He sleeps a lot, from blood being low and pain meds.

But he is in good spirits.

I will keep you all updated on his CT scan.

Thank you for the thoughts and prayers!
