I realized the other day that I write when I'm stressed. I suppose that its helpful to share with others at that point in time. I wrote a little update on Thursday, October 30th as Peter was in another anesthetic procedure called an E.R.C.P. Basically, the bile ducts connectiing Peter to the new liver are tight and blocked. This likely contributes to Peter being itchy, tired and who know what else? The procedure went well and then... well... let's see what the labs may bring... Thank you all so, so much for your love and support!

What is there to say that might be new? Well, ... Peters liver numbers continue to change - each in their own respective ups and downs. Some directions are great and other directions require more tweaking of meds. Tubes and staples are out. Now more healing can happen. I can't wait for another scan of his liver, where they say that its fully regenerated. That'll be an interesting day! Meeting up with Dominic and Donald (his Dad), here for his follow up visit. It will be nice to see them! Next clinic will be next week. More updates then, if not before!
