1 month

Today makes 1 month that my husband has been in the hospital.

(right before his gallbladder remove -aka before the doctor messed him up and cut his bile duck and artery and vein to liver)

1 week in Vegas and 3 weeks here at UCLA in California.

(view from hospital window, UCLA campus and football practice field)

I have been with him most of the time while in Vegas, but all of the time while he has been at UCLA.

My mom flew up from Hawaii, to take care of our daughter and run the fabric shoppe.

After watching her for 2 weeks, she had to get back, so took lana back with her to Hawaii.

(my husband has loss tons of weight and hates having his picture taken, so this one is the one he approved of, which was taken at lake Tahoe a week before his going to the hospital)

The worst of this whole ordeal is behind us..

But because of the cut artery and vein to his liver, part of his right liver is dead.
The good part is you don't need your full liver to live and the great part is if your liver is damaged it CAN revitalize itself and work again properly over time.

However there is a leak of bile coming out from the dead side of the liver that they are monitoring. If it doesn't start to scar up and heal there is a chance he could have his 4 surgery in a month.

This time they will need to remove the "dead" part of his right liver, eliminating the leak all together.

None of us want this to happen, but as of yet it is not off the table. We are praying this leak will heal soon on its own.

So as my daughter enjoys the sun and beach.....

I have this picture to look at and remind myself that there is a end in sight and someday this whole ordeal will behind us.

Oh my goodness. That is terrible. I'll be hoping the leak scars and he won't have to endure a fourth surgery. I'm so sorry you have to go through all this!

Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray that you will guide the doctors as they monitor 'hubby's' recovery.
I pray for a speedy recovery in only the way that you can do.
I pray for comfort and peace for the family.
Place a hedge of protection around them and place your healing hands over them.
In your name I pray, Amen.

Thinking of you!

WOW! What a terrible ordeal you've all been going through, particularly your husband! How scary for healthy young man ... husband and father ... to find himself in such a situation. Medical screw ups ... scary stuff.

Know that thoughts and prayers are coming to you from near and far.
