All good things must come to an end! And so it is for our time at home. Alex and I have really loved being home and getting back into a routine. Unfortunately, I got a call friday morning letting me know that the ERCP (Invasive Pancreas test) will take place this week. I do not have an exact day of departure yet. I am trying to quickly get everything in order here and get packed up. We are expecting to be inpatient about a month. To recap...After the ERCP, we will wait to see if his pancreatitis flares. If so, we will wait for that to settle down. Then we will do a surgery to place a seperate J tube and make any revisions to his pancreas, and possibly take out his gallbladder. Once he is healed from surgery, we will attempt feeds. If his pancreas does not immediately flare, Dr. Koenig will allow us to come home and continue working on progressing his feeds here. With the ultimate goal of getting back on J tube feeds and off TPN.
Please continue to keep all of us in your prayers especially Bruce and his continuing Job search.
