All of Sam's levels had returned to normal on Saturday morning and they have scheduled his biopsy and Endoscopy for Monday at 11:00 a.m. They will be taking tissue samples from his small and large intestines as well as taking a look at his digestive track from both ends. The whole procedure should take a few hours and Sam will be fully sedated during this.

Sam developed a little fever today, which will hopefully resolve itself by later this evening. If it does not we may have to delay the biopsy and endoscopy. Hopefully we can at least get this step over with on Monday and find some answers to what is going on. We should have his biopsy results back in a few days and should know by Tuesday if anything shows up on the endoscopy.

Deb, Ryan, and I have been staying at the Ronald McDonald house this weekend. Deb will be staying there full time for at least the next few weeks and Ryan is traveling back and forth to spend time with both of us. I plan on coming up for the weekends and returning to work each Tuesday morning. It has been a little stressful this week trying to get used to everyone being separated all of the time but so far it has not been so bad, hopefully we do not have to do this for long.
