Treading Water

It's been a few days since Chemo Wednesday(on Thursday this time). I've had a bum back, sciatic nerve I think, when your leg tingles and your pinkie toe goes numb I think that's an indication of "the butt nerve" bugging me. Anyway, this is not about me.
Doctor L. basically told us that right now we are treading water, but that a life preserver just might have been thrown our way. When the 4 liter baby was removed they did another ultrasound to check all the possible areas fluid could be hiding. The ultrasound might have found possible dilation of the bile duct, hip-hip-hooray! With that little clog now they can go in and "roto-rooter" and stint the duct, hopefully reversing the liver number. Within a few weeks of the procedure we could possibly see his liver back to a better level of functioning, which in turn means better chemo drugs.
We are so excited and are praying fervently that this is the problem we have been looking for since the end of August. In the meantime Duane is still miserable from the chemo, but holding onto this new life preserver. Love you all!
