They have opted not to do the CT scan as of yet today. Jeremy did have an x-ray, but that does not mean very much. The doctors will be conferencing at 11:00 this morning to discuss what is best for Jeremy in terms of removal of the last tube and the monitoring of his status over the day. His pacreatic enzymes have elevated again. As a result, he is NPO for the entire day - that is NO FOOD or DRINK. He was SO GOOD yesterday with his diet. His daily fat gram count restriction is 40 grams and he ate 26 grams the ENTIRE DAY.
He is also feeling pretty crummy this morning. He cannot really describe the symptoms, just that he doesn't feel well. So the steady climb we were making has paused. We really need you to bathe him in prayer this morning. Pray that whatever is causing his discomfort or weakness or just blah feeling will cease. He is receiving an IV of nutrients today, but that will not completely strengthen him like a good meal will. We ask you to pray for his enzymes to GO DOWN. Pray that this "starving" does just that. Pray that he can rest some today in between all the consults and poking and prodding. Pray that he does not have pancreatitis. Satan is trying hard to rob Jeremy of joy and peace and we need Satan to be banned from this place. We need a hedge of protection around him. We need the Jeremy that was beginning to show to not go away.
Pray for his resolve and for his spirits. Pray for his health and continual improvement. Pray they still do the CT and pull this tube. I still feel that would make him feel better. Pray for wisdom on all people today - me, Jeremy, Dr. Kemp, Dr. Shrump, Dr. Malech, nurses, and techs. Pray for no setbacks, only steps forward. Even if they are baby steps, we are ok with steps forward.
