A Good Day

That moment when your Dada’s procedure went well and he’s feeling better!

The radiologist was able to advance the drain to a more favorable position today, and expects the tube to be capped and the bag gone within the next 48ish hours! He mentioned that he had a very difficult time getting past the narrowing, but is pleased with the outcome today.

He had to place a smaller tube to get past the stricture and expects the tube to need exchanging within the next 8-10 weeks. Looks like our five-year anniversary trip will be to the Midwest just in time for the autumn leaves to change.

Co is already feeling better and his spirits have improved…he’s already cracking jokes and giving us a hard time with his witty banter.

He’ll have labs in the morning to ensure his liver enzymes and bilirubin are trending down as well as a follow-up with his liver team for the next steps. Our tentative plan is to return home Monday, giving him the weekend to rest and recoup before the trek home.

Thank y’all for all of the comments, messages, texts, calls, gift cards, prayers, good vibes, rain dances, and love you’ve sent our way. It truly means the world to us to have such an incredible support system. 

All our love,

Addie, Madee, & Co
