I just received a call from the hospital. The treatments they started this morning have stablized Angeline for now. This is a Good Thing. They have so far ruled out kidney disease for the loss of protein, they have ruled out an intussuseption (where one part of the intestine slides back into the intestine and creates a blockage) and pancreatitis. Ruling these things out is a Good Thing. The nutritionist said we can move forward with the IV TPN for nutrition directly into her bloodstream. This also will allow them to put a different liquid food directly into her intestines that should provide better support to her “little gut cells” and hopefully give them a better opportunity to heal. Hopefully this will also be a Good Thing. I have decided I need to start counting the Good Things and focusing on them. So here are three Good Things.
