We've moved! The Forest Park Building is our new home, room 3704. Derek's been continuing to improve. Thanks be to God! He went for a short walk, is sitting up for a couple hours at a time, and has had the artery line and other monitors removed. They are doing his tube feeds as a slow drip which is currently only up to 35 ml / hr. (not enough to stay alive on) Hopefully, this can continue to increase as his stomach begins working again as it should. The leakage is very little at this rate.
Mayo Clinic has okayed him to restart the Pazoponib, and the hospital pharmacy here has okayed us to use the already mixed syringes we had at home, so tonight should be his first trial of that following the sepsis. I pray it goes well and doesn't drop his white blood cell count again.
God's blessings be poured on all of you who care so much for Derek!
