Thursday Overnight update
His g tube site looks much, much worse. So if your stomach couldn't handle the picture I posted yesteray, then you would never make one I posted today. (So I won't post it.) But suffice to say, it' now missing most of it's skin and is outright oozing blood. And it's bigger.
He got IV antibiotics last night - every 6 hours. But they don't know what it is yet. They ran a lot of tests and just told me they will need to run some more.
Meanwhile, he cannot eat until they figure this out so he's been "fasting" for 24 hours. Yes, he's getting fluids so he's not dehydrated. BUT, he's hungry. And he's getting weak quickly. Hoping they figure this out soon so he can eat again.
Then he now has a raw spot on his ear - who knows where that is from. AND he has a patch of skin missing where the tape was holding his canula on last night. He must have paper skin.
The last issue (For now) is that he is not producing much urine. Not sure why. This is new. They are concerned.
Thanks for the prayers.
