What a roller coaster up, down, and all around. This is how a new friend described her and her husbands battle with cancer and oh how I could relate.
The last two days have been such an emotional roller coaster. We are going into almost two weeks away from all our kids and missing them greatly. My dear friend had to leave back to Mexico at the exact time that seans liver was basically crashing.
He bled for three days straight. Pouring blood. He had to stay in bed while they bandaged and put heavy weight/pressure on his wound. All the while trying to correct his blood so that the bleeding would stop. That is the amazing thing about being in Mexico compared to Canada. They do not just put band aids on things but go to the root of the problem and try and correct that.
That is what they have been doing the last three days. In between bandage changes soaked in blood. Sean received 6 doses of blood product to correct his coagulation along with multiple shots of vitamin k. After that they needed to give him two blood transfusions.
So after three nights in the hospital, 6 infusions, 2transfusions around $4000 he is stable. His blood is at a normal point. Which is a Miracle. They are keeping him one more night in the hospital (costs $400usd per night) to monitor him. But he should be able to stay tomorrow night back at the hotel and continue next week as an out patient.
He is quite tired and also got a bed sore from being trapped to the bed. He is still having headaches too but is looking much better today. The good things are they have continued treatment of his liver this whole time. And his spirits are not down.
THANK YOU your prayers, encouraging messages, just knowing so many were standing with us means the world. Seriously helped keep my head up.
Continuing to fight.
Continuing to pray.
Continuing to take one day at a time.
Eph 6:13 and having done everything. Stand firm!
