Duane's Recent Delivery

Don't let the smile deceive. My husband has been a miserable beast for the last week. Hannah even asked if he had a baby in his tummy. But today a little relief came when the doctors drained 4 liters of fluid from one of two pockets full in his abdomen. 4 liters, 1 gallon, 8 lbs, anyway you think about it, severe pain is what it was. He is resting so much better now, not depending on going to the bathroom, or laying a certain way to relieve pressure.
The major stinky thing is we still have to wait until Thursday (chemo Wed. moved back one day) to find out what it was and why. I hate waiting. But for the time being Duane is a much happier camper and proud papa of his delivered 4 liter baby.

Becky you are so great. You really are an inspiration to us all. I'm glad Duane is at least a little more comfortable.

Lisa said...

Whoa! That's very interesting. I'm really interested to see what caused it. I'm glad he is feeling a little better. That did NOT look comfortable.

Jared and Elizabeth said...

all i can say is OUCH! Wow hope they are able to find out what is causing it and help him feel better. Hope is chemo went alright today too. Love you!

Katrina said...

Wow and Ouch! And we complained when we were having a baby. For once, I will have to say what Duane is going through is worse than childbirth! You really are an inspiration, Becky, and I don't even know you and your sweet family. God bless!

Wow! I am glad that he is a little more comfortable and sleeping better! Let us know if there is anything we can do to help out! :)
