I spoke with Daddy today and for the first time in a while, he sounds much better. We've had some amazing people share the phone numbers of several specialists in the gastroenterology field and we want to thank you all!
Daddy has a feeding tube that seems to be making things a little better. He is getting nutrition, just not in a way that will allow him to come home any time soon. He is groggy from pain medication and has become an expert on anything on television. By the way, if you are looking for a job, apparently, the INS is hiring. He wants me to spread the word!
It is so wonderful to hear him sounding a little better. He spoke with me without gagging for the first time in a long time.
Finally, we have a little hope.
And Hope, as we all know, is a powerful thing.
