From Transplant to Gastro

So the procedure went well yesterday. His stomach has reduced in size and the stent they placed will stay in for awhile and that should remove some of the problems. Since the liver is working, transplant thought it be better for GI to get involved.

He is not able to keep anything down at this point, and they are giving him nutrition via IV ..TPN and lipids. Today they are going to do more blood cultures, urine samples etc in part of see if anything is going on with his blood, other infections and if he is loosing his electrolytes through the urine. Hematology is also going to get involved to figure out his blood issues such as his lack of clodding etc.

So we will play the waiting game once again and hope there is a resolution. Alas this is all I have for now.
