Quick status update on Skyler; with photos!!

Updated: I have some pictures of the procedure, if you are geeky like me and like that kind of thing. They are posted over at Skylers Spine and there is a road map of the areas they look at with photos taken through the scope. I put them over there so you have to go click to look, because I know how sensitive some of you are... :^)

Hi all, we just got home from the hospital. They found two spots in Skylers stomach that have problems, one is an ulcer on his G-Tube spot, and the other is a "linear erosion" on the stomach wall. So we are going to go get some prescriptions filled for some medicine to give him for both. It is like a drinkable liquid "bandage" for the stomach, sounds pretty wild!

Skyler did very well with the whole thing, he is quite the trooper these days. Kathy is going to the pharmacy and I am taking care of him, but I wanted to check in and let you all know what's up.

Thanks again everyone, I really appreciate all of the nice comments and well wishes on and off the blog,
Sky-Dad

    A drinkable liquid bandage? Ewww. Doesn't sound too tasty, does it? But hopefully it's not too awful.

  12. It sounds like the doctors can keep this under control. You had a rough day. Try to get some rest.

  13. "liquid bandage for the stomach" sounds so wonderfully space-agey, like something used to fix someone up on the Jetsons, or something. I wonder whats in it? And is it green like that fix-a-flat stuff they use in bike tires?? (lord, I apologize).

    Glad to hear all is well, or at least going to BE well!! We've been thinkin' 'boutcha-- it's almost as cold HERE as it is out THERE, but we've got more oxygen.
