So much happened yesterday. I wish I had been able to update the website before now, but things have been busy. As I mentioned yesterday, Bo had continued to bleed from the new central line site. He bled through the dressing they put on in surgery, bled through the new dressing they put on that […]

Thank you for your prayers yesterday for Bo’s surgery. The surgery itself sounds like it went smoothly. Unfortunately, Bo is still bleeding from the site where the line is placed. His platelets (cells in our blood which help it to clot) fluctuate daily, so he’s been getting more transfusions to keep his numbers up. We […]

They’re giving him some diuretics to help things along, but I believe they’ll reevaluate in the morning if he’ll go back on or stay […]

We had another quiet day and night, praise the Lord! Our team has been anticipating needing to change the filter on Bo’s dialysis machine for close to 36 hours now. With the clots being filtered out due to his liver blockage as well as the platelets he’s constantly getting, the pressure in the filter keeps […]
