Mom in law

July 23, 2008

Tuesday night Steph took her mom to the ER.  Steph’s Mom (SM) had been feeling crummy for a while, but noticed on Tuesday that she had become very much jaundiced.  SM stayed the night.  Docs were thinking Hep A.  Tests came back Wednesday (today) morning.  Turns out it is not Hep A.  There appears to be an obstruction in the gallbladder/kidney/pancreas area which is causing bile to back up.  Steph’s mom is being transferred down to Beth Israel Hospital in Boston for further testing.  Apparently it’ll be a multi-step process:

1) put a scope in SM and figure out exactly where the blockage is.
2) figure out what the blockage is and how it got there
3) treat accordingly whether that’s medicine or surgery or… who knows.

If you would please pray for the following:

1) SM’s nerves – it’s the first time she’s been in a hospital for herself since Steph’s brother was born 20+ years ago.
2) SM’s body, see above.  🙂
3) Steph’s Dad’s nerves and wisdom – Steph’s dad is currently at home in WA state.  He’s in the midst of trying to figure out if/when to fly out here.
4) Steph’s nerves – obviously not an easy thing to see your mom not well.  And Steph is uber tired.

Thanks for supporting us.
