Friday, August 20, 2010 Update

OK so they took Robbi down yesterday to a procedure room and knocked her out with the propofol and looked at her esophagus, they tied off 2 or 3 (can't remember-sorry) varices that had been bleeding and the rest they said looked ok.
When Robbi woke up her throat hurt, she said today that it feels like a tortilla chip is stuck halfway down her throat. Her voice is very scratchy and I felt a little bit guilty calling her and making her talk. They said once she can eat and go poo and pee they will send her home! So, maybe today. The also did a chest xray, since she complained so much about her throat hurting,they wanted to make sure everything looked normal in there, which I guess it did because they didn't do anything different.
So shes working very hard to eat what she can, said this morning she managed to get scrambled eggs down. Please continue to pray for Robbi!

Well...that sounds like good news.....well....for Robbi that's good news.....for anyone else it would sound horrible.

Wonderful news. My first endoscopy hurt like heck and I had to stay in the hospital while they kept me on a 72 hour drip. I've had a few more since then, but each one of them got easier every time.
I've been reading your blog for a little while now and it sounds like Robbi has been having a tough time lately.
I share your post with my wife and children and we are keeping you all in our prayers.
Best wishes.

Checking in. Hope everyone is doing well.

Weather cooled off here just a bit. Also rained just enough to mess up my newly washed car.

How is Dr. McDreamy? I'm really hoping you share a picture of him sometime soon. He has got to be hot!!! lol

Take care and prayers and strength sent your way always.

Hugs
