Abby is still back in surgery. I will update again after she is out. Most of Abby's medical team has rounded today. The only positive thing to report is that her liver enzymes are almost completely normal. This is a huge answer to prayer and we are very thankful that God has healed her liver.
I wish I had more good news, but I don't. Abby's wound on her g-tube site looks a lot worse than it did when we shared a pictures of it. Honestly, it has progressively looked worse, each and every day since then. Her primary doctor has declared this an emergency and all of the other doctors agree. Normally they would NEVER take a cancer patient to surgery, when they had no WBC, but surgery is now the best hope Abby has of curing her. They have hit her with every "big gun" antibiotic they have and an antifungal, but nothing is helping, in fact things are much worse.
The plan in surgery is to get a big enough tissue sample to run a long list of tests on it. They will also irrigate it, trying to flush out some of the bacteria. Because Abby won't be able to heal from this surgery until her WBC recover, they will try to make the smallest incisions possible.
Abby's pain is much harder to manage now. They keep increasing the doses, but she is still really hurting. She was up almost once an hour last night, asking for more medicine. Abby almost NEVER asks for pain medicine, so this tells us a lot about how badly she is hurting. They are going to try to do some new things to help her today.
I will update again after Abby is finished. Thank you so much for praying.
