My dear friends,
Thank you all for your kind words, support and most of all prayers.
Gene still has severe encephalopathy but has stabalized and appears to be gradually improving. I know all your prayers and Donna's angels have helped get us through these frightening times.
The most frustrating part is the doctors cannot determine the cause or causes for Gene's sudden decline. Yes, I saw subtle indications for days, but on Thursday he was near the coma stage.
All Gene's lab results have been normal or near normal. He should be dancing the Polka; but he isn't. His iron levels have returned to normal and perhaps his toxcity is from the short term iron supplements. Bless your heart Val, you warned us but we had no other options.
His Doctor yesterday thought perhaps the low iron reading earlier this month was an error; that could have been a fatal mistake but is typical of the medical care we receive or don't receive.
We're awaiting results of the culture to rule out a UTI.
Another time I'll post our most recent nightmare experience with the medical establishment.
Bless all of you,
LIVE IN THE MOMENT!
Hugs and Prayers
