Duane has been in the hospital since late Sunday night, the build up of fluid on his abdomen and a new complication left not a lot of options. Yesterday morning they drained an additional 3 1/2 liters of fluid, making the grad total of 7 1/2 liters, approximately 15 pounds of discomfort. He is feeling better, thank goodness. Today they hopefully will perform the procedure to open up the blockage in the bile duct. We pray that all goes well and this will be the help his liver needs to start functioning better.
*As of 5:30 today nothing has been done, and probably won't be!!! I swear, hospitals and doctors are infamous when it comes to making you wait or giving you false hope. We'll see what happens.

I normally just read your family blog. I am so sorry I didn't know about Duane being in the hospital. I will add his name to the prayer roll today and will keep prayers coming your way.
I hate hospitals and doctors. I had pancreatitis and it took them over 10 hours to figure it out. Argg! Hang in there and let Duane know that we are praying for him.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Stopping by from SITS...saw you on the roll call, and totally agree with you that we need to pray for whoever our president is...even if they wouldn't have been our choice.

You have a beautiful family, and I will pray for you all!
