Back Again - Are you confused?

Is he home or not? These posts are getting confusing. As of yesterday - Kenyon is back at the BMT unit at University hospital. He really probably should not have come home Monday. He definitely did not get any better the two days he was home so back he goes. And hopefully they can really treat him this time. They finally did an x-ray (which they should have done last week - I think). That showed some perforation of the intestinal walls that is leaking the gas into the body. It is hard to explain but it isn't a great thing. I know that much. So they are trying to get that gas released with a tube that goes down his nose into his stomach. They are also taking him off food again - and this time for a long time. The gut needs some serious healing. We'll keep you posted.

Annie, I heard last night when I was with Monette. I am so sorry. This has got to be such a rollercoaster ride for you guys. No fun at all. We hope things start turning around soon. We love you and are thinking about you all the time.

That is insane. I am sorry. Gas leaking? Thanks for reminding me to be grateful for my family that seems to have more than our share of gas leaking out the correct place :0. (I hope that doesn't sound insensitive).

Ah dang it. Man, you guys are just pioneers. I wish I could come and bring you all a warm dinner and take your kids for a few hours and send you off to get a pedi. Your mom is an angel and I'm sure she's been a great help!

As always, praying for you, keeping his name on the prayer roll. Hang in there. :) You're amazing!

Oh darn - that stinks. We will pray that he will get well enough to come home again soon. What a disappointment to have to go back so soon after coming home.
