.just heard from Jackson's doctor that he is resting comfortably after a rigorous afternoon of poking and prodding! He apparently became a bit of his old self and was a little feisty when the naso tube was inserted, but now he is resting comfortably and being fed, hydrated, and medicated. He's being given vitamin K to improve his blood clotting so that tomorrow the doctor can take a needle biopsy of his liver to give us more of an idea of exactly what we are dealing with. Meanwhile, he's being fed the appropriate nutrients to treat his probable fatty liver condition, and he's being given insulin to manage his diabetes. Hopefully, all of this will help reduce his bilirubin levels, which are elevated, and his gall bladder can return to normal function.
He's not out of the woods yet, but Shelby and I were encouraged by the doctors words and wisdom. Oh, and there's no sepsis... a VERY good thing! Please continue to keep him in your thoughts! I'll get to go see him tomorrow!
