Well, Dr. Martin just came in to speak with us. He had a lengthy conversation with us yesterday also. What amazed me, though, was when he came back up about 45 minutes later right before his first surgery. He said he felt that I had not been able to ask him everything I had wanted to. So, he stayed up here for another 15 minutes with me making sure I had all my questions answered and letting me know that he will come up often if that’s what is needed to make sure I am comfortable with everything involving Stefan’s care. In this age of constant rushing, it still amazes me that there is a doctor out there who so genuinely shows us care and concern.
Now, for today’s update. Stef will not be going home for quite awhile. The earliest would be late this week or weekend if that. Dr. Martin wants to make sure, as I do, that we don’t go home just to return a couple days later. So, while it is getting tiring being here, I know that that is the best thing. Dr. Martin wants his pain under control and also wants to make sure that we have everything taken care of regarding his G-tube and fistula. He said this morning that the care will be a lot at home, so he wants to know that I am comfortable with everything.
We did not get the CT done last night that we were supposed to because all of Stef’s pre-meds and contrast leaked out around his G-tube. Hopefully, we will get that later today. We’re interested, as is Dr. Martin, in knowing what is causing so much of his pain.
I guess I would ask that you continue to pray for healing. Also, pray that his pain would decrease so he can be more comfortable. Thanks so much.
