NG tubes aren’t fun either

Nothing really new to report. Just going slow. It’s hard to tell if there is any progress, seems like more little steps backwards than forward. The doctors started the golytely yesterday afternoon after Dan finished a 6 hour round of dialysis. Around midnight he started having a tough time. Was getting short of breath and feeling very full and uncomfortable. So they stopped the golytely and then this morning put him back on suction to let his stomach rest some more.

Dan’s mom and sister Katey brought Jackson back to Seattle last night. They had been at home for five days, so it was so good to see them all. It was good to have more familiar faces around. The hospital staff is nice, but they are not substitutes for friends and family. It was especially wonderful seeing Jackson.
