Okay, I'll start.
This is really hard, and I should probably have something wise to say. But I don't. All I can say is this is really hard.
Today Mom went in for her ERCP, a procedure in which an endoscope is threaded through the GI tract into the liver. The doctors will then "brush" out the cells that are clogging the Bile Ducts, and keep some of those cells for the pathologists to examine. The Bile Duct is then held open by a stent, so all the fluid and salts that have been building up in her body can finally be metabolized and excreted like they normally would, thus hopefully resolving the Oompa Loompa thing she has going on. I have no idea when those results will be back.
I do know that Dad hasn't eaten lunch yet, and he needs to but won't leave her side for anything. I'm definitely taking him something to eat later tonight, whether he likes it or not.
Whew, first post down. Who's next?
