Hospital Visit Today

Mom still has her cold, so she spent the morning at home. But around 2 pm, a nurse came to tell her that Dad was being taken to the hospital for another blocked feeding tube. They invited her to ride along, cold and all, so she went.

Instead of trying to clear the blockage, the surgeon just replaced the feeding tube. When Mom told him that Dad's liquid diet doesn't seem to be digesting, he ordered a dye test x-ray. It didn't show any internal blockage, which was encouraging. But it doesn't explain why his stomach is not digesting the liquid diet, or why he continues to lose weight.

I'm going up a week from tomorrow! Can't wait to see them. As always, we appreciate your prayers for peace and wisdom.
