I've ignored this blog. What's the point of writing a post each day when it is the same thing over and over? If you have ever seen the movie Groundhog Day; such is our life! One month since hubby has been able to work, 17 days in the hospital just this month (with more to go), 9 days in isolation, 7 days without eating, one day of being hungry (yay!), 2 days of a break for myself as my husband and I did changing of the guards and I spent some time with my other two children, countless doctors and tests. Vomiting once or twice each 24 hours. Bloody stools still (more blood then stool). Zero answers. The surgeons, GI doctors, and oncologist all toss the ball amongst themselves. Telescoping intestine? Scans aren't showing that. Infection caused by chemotherapy? Maybe, but it never presents this way. Other infection? All tests have been negative. No fevers either. The word puzzling is the only conclusive answer. Jacob will be here through the weekend - hopefully improving and healing more. His five day chemotherapy will start on Monday. With this extended stay, I wanted to let you all know that if you are in the USA and would like to send a card to his hospital room, as long as it is sent within the next few days, he should be able to receive some fun at mail call each day!E-mail me at babys_mama1 "at" yahoo.com for the address, if interested. And please keep those prayers coming!
