Friday update

After waiting in the hospital cafeteria for rounds for three and a half hours......nothing has changed! Thomas is stable. His abdominal X-ray looks good, and we are so thankful. His WBC went down to 18, and his crp is down slightly to 5.6. Kidney function levels are still really elevated, but stable. The CT surgeon said they might close his chest tomorrow if swelling improves some more!

That is all for now...I'm anxious to go sit with Thomas!

Please continue to pray for his colon,his kidneys,urine output, and for swelling to decrease.

God has not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
-Annie Johnson Flint
