Hi All,
We need at lot of prayer for my husband. He's had 4 of CT Scan and One MRI. He has a bone infection in his lower back and a couple of abscess areas that are really infected. We are being sent up to the University of Washington this week to see if they will do surgery and clean up the area's. He's had crohn's for 28 years he's had 2 surgery and only has some of his small bowel left not much. He is going to one of the best surgeon at UW. I was thinking the was a long road for us but this has been long enough. 14 years ago was his first surgery today and he had a total colon and rectum removal. Some how the crohn's fisucla through his back muscle and out the lower back skin. He has two holes in his intestine. Well thanks for listening tonight. Will keep u up to date.

Peg I don't know how I missed this post. I see cecelia already asked his name. I will keep him n prayer as well as put him on the prayer list at my church. Let him know that many prayers will go up on his behalf.

And peg, we'll b praying for u too. Though you remain strong and so giving to others, it must b difficult for u as well. U both will be unbelievably blessed when this is over!

Thanks for all the prayer's and having someone else to talk to. Our friends are really great and stand with us in support. But we did go to the doctors so here what when on.

We went to the doctors today and also called the UW. First let me tell you what the UW told me today about our first appointment it is Feb 28th and then if he need surgery would be in end of March. So in the process she gave me another Doctor a friend of the one from UW and he is just a good and hoping to get into sooner. Now back to our appointment from today. Dave is still holding his own and they said that putting him in the hospital could help or not help. We are going to start the TPN line, they had to set it up some time this week.

Well I will keep up up to date everyweek.
Peggy
