Katy came out of surgery OK earlier today. This afternoon it became obvious that she was continuing to bleed somewhere in her GI tract. I gave permission for a scope of her GI, and it returned the results that she is seeping blood from the lining of her stomach and intestines. The problem with seepage is that they cannot go in and plug the hole. They are giving her FFP (fresh frozen plasma-the part of the blood that has clotting factor in it), and vitamin K. They think that the blood is too thin, and that the thinning is causing the bleeding. We are still on “wait and see” mode. Please pray that she passes this newest challenge to her recovery. If we can get through this, then we should be able to move her to accute care in the next couple of weeks. I hope the current treatment works. I really would like to see her well enought to go to the much nicer environment in accute care.
Love to all,
