Today has been a much better day than yesterday. Even though we have been moved into the ICU, he has calmed down significantly. Thanks to some wonderful medication, he was finally able to stool and help relieve severe belly distension. Afterwards, he was able to relax and sleep. He hasn’t slept restfully in days. So, this is wonderful news.
Tonight he will start his 3rd day of chemo (out of 5) for this round. So far, so good; however, there is a long row to hoe.
Immediate prayer requests:
1. Continue to stabilize
2. That the need for supplemental Oxygen will decrease.
3. That the need for pain medication will decrease.
4. Healing for his belly will increase, esp. after such severe distension
5. That the chemo will continue to kill the NB
