We do not have much to update today. Everything is moving at a snails pace as most of the tests that they want to do next require Sam to be sedated. Before they do that to him they want all of his levels to be stable and normal. Almost everything has returned to normal since Monday and we just have a little further to go with his blood PH. This means that it will most likely be next week before they will do his Endoscopy and intestinal biopsy. They are going to do both of these at the same time so that he only needs to be sedated once.
Sam was very much awake and hungry today. He was very frustrated with not being able to eat and voiced it. Mom got a little break as Jason's aunt Kathy came to visit and got her out of the hospital for awhile. Gramps stopped by and so did Jason's cousin Amy and her husband Chad. Deb said that it was a relief to see some familiar faces and she really enjoyed having visitors.
Ryan and I will be headed to Milwaukee tomorrow after I am done with work. I will be heading home for work after the weekend, but Ryan gets to stay down in Milwaukee with Deb at the Ronald McDonald house until Wednesday of next week. He is very excited to see his brother and his Mom.
