Sunday September 18th

The day after surgery, Chris was in good spirits and little pain. Now, however, the toll of the surgery is now making things more difficult. He is experiencing more discomfort and more restlessness. Sleep is difficult, and he is feeling more lethargic. He is still coherent and smiling.

At the worst, Chris' bilirubin (the yellow compound created in the liver) count was 17.5 (25 is the max toxicity the body can handle). Today he was told his bilirubin is at 15. Great news!

Chris is still welcoming guests. It would be a great idea to visit and come prepared with stories since he is more able to listen than to share. Thank you for your support.
