I talked to Den a few minutes ago and nothing has really changed. The dr's are still stumped and are ordering more tests today based on the lab work Adam had done this morning. The IV caused an infection in Adam's arm and last night at about 3am, they switched it to the other arm after noticing his arm was swollen up like a balloon. Adam is not getting much sleep now between his belly and his arm causing him pain. The dr's are waiting for his stomache to shrink back down, since the swelling caused it to stretch.
To be honest, Den sounded like shit. He isnt sleeping and the bad news yesterday put everyone back into a holding pattern leaving nothing to do to make Addie feel better. I asked if there was anything he needed, and he kiddingly said a laptop. But seriously, if anyone out there has a laptop they would let Den use for a little while - I know it would feel like a godsend to him. I'll give you the address and the details if you are feeling mighty generous. :)
He also mentioned that he and Adam spend their days and nights watching really bad tv. There is a VCR there and we could send in video tapes for them to watch. Adam likes anything with animals, Disney, wacky comedies, those Ernest goes to everywhere films, anything that is funny and not a cartoon. Den likes porn. Nancy, I don't know if you want to spend some of the fund now to send some or to send something else to brighten Adam's stay. It looks like he is going to be there a while. Just a thought. I am going to see what I can come up with for videos for now.
Anyway, that's all the news I have to share. I told Adam that we are all praying for him and that we all love him very much. I'll be talking to Den later tonight and will let you know if anything changes in the meantime.
