Nope, dad hasn't eaten anything since Fudruckers last night. Well, thanks to Noma he did have a couple cookies.
The ERCP went well. The Texan Doc tells us the Proximal bile duct is completely blocked by a mass, which is a tumor, but the other side has been cleared, and the stent has been placed. The results of this procedure will take some time, but tomorrow morning when her labs are taken, we may have a good idea if the stent is helping her look more like Willy Wonka instead of the Oompa Loompas.
The Doc did also say he got some brushings. Again, the results will take time. The best results would be he gets some cancer cells. The bad results would be the tumor is on the outside pushing in. This would mean the Liver Biopsy would be a possibility, which then causes the liver to bleed. We don't want this to happen. Pray and keep your fingers crossed we don't.
Other than the gasiness, and the feeling of being hit by a truck, mom is doing good. Her spirits are high, and we all laugh a lot. This is our way of coping.
Thanks to all those who visited tonight. We all appreciate your support, and the cookies. :)
