He's Doing Better

A quick update: Phil is doing much better since he's been on the steroids! He's up and about, and in better spirits. We are ecstatic! He is still weak and jaundice, but much better. As far as the lymphoma in the stomach (we still don't know if it's related to the AIP) we are leaving it till we see more improvement on the more important Auto Immune Pancreatitis. Phil will go in about a month from now to check up on how the tumor is looking and we will go from there.

He will need much more time to gain strength before going back to work. In the meantime, your gifts have been keeping us going and we cannot thank you enough!!!!!!! Hardest thing at this point is getting my boy to change his eating habits ;) Notice that I have edited some of his food guidelines here. I'm working on him! I am in recovering mode, quite exhausted and burnt out but at the end of the day, we're just happy it's not the C word and Whipple.

Kay has been helping so much with keeping the house clean and giving us hugs and encouragement constantly. She is a rock, I tell you! As you can imagine she is so happy her son is getting better :) She will be here another week and a half.

We love you and thank you for all of your concerns and support, once again. We have received all of your cards and emails! I promise you will be getting replies! Much love, Hollie
