Biopsy Results are Back

Well the results of the biopsy are back and it shows signs of a blockage, however, the other test (MRCP) they did did not visually show a blockage. In addition, his pancreatic enzyme levels came down greatly and his billirubin came down also slightly. We are hoping those continue to trend downwards. The Critical Care team, GI docs, and General Surgery are all in debate if the removal off the gall bladder is needed at this time. If the levels continue to trend downwards tomorrow they are willing to 'wait and see' how his levels continue to trend and not push it as an emergent case. So we are praying they continue to trend towards towards normal range.
In addition, Caleb's EEG (brain wave activity) test came back and there is no signs of seizure activity.
He has been sleeping off and on the last 24 hours which is much needed due to the lack of sleep and withdraw. So we are hoping that he will soon get through that but it will take awhile as he is still on morphine, quanidine, methadone, and valum to help him withdraw. The morphine will be the first drug they try to wean once they feel his withdrawl is getting better. We are hoping that his abnormal eye activity is related to the withdrawl also.
As far as updates that is all I have for now, but he is STABLE and STABLE is great!!!
God Bless you all and thank you for your prayers.
Kiss your children often-don't take anything for granted. Cherish the smiles, the laughs, the funny faces, the eyes opening, cherish every little thing. Don't take anything for granted!!!
God Bless Caleb!
