MARGOT JUST GOT IN FROM CALIFORNIA!
Andrew's mrcp and endoscopy came back and there wasn't any major findings on why Andrew's abdomen is hurting, for such a long period of time. The Mrcp showed the pseudo cyst found around the pancreas went down dramatically all on it's own! Praise God! It also showed the the tubes following from the pancreas were draining properly and smooth and straight. The endoscopy showed the a little swelling around the opening in the stomach draining to the small intestines. As a result, the g.i. doctors prescribed a special antibiotic that will linger in his stomach instead of spreading it systemically around the body, which should kill any remaining bad bacteria. Also, all the pain meds that he has received isn't fixing his stomach issues, it's just masking them. Andrew finally found an oral pain med that seems to be working. Andrew has tried virtually every oral narcotic to no prevail. We continue to wait for the results of the bone marrow biopsy to see if Andrew is in remission. We also are praying the potential match is indeed a match. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY UNTIL WE FIND THE RESULTS AND WE FIND OUT IF THE PERSON IS A MATCH. WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED. Thank you everyone!
