Yesterday at chemo was somewhat disappointing. I was down a pound in weight and the blood work showed an uptick in the bilirubin level. The week began with Susan's discovery of a bloody bile bag which is monitored at home. News of the bleed prompted Dr. Chen, on Tuesday, to contact Dr. Omdal, the doctor who originally placed the drain, to have a look, which he did today at Swedish. The problem proved to be a blood clot in the drain which Dr. Omdal replaced in a 45 minute procedure. I'm feeling fine today (Wednesday) thanks to a higher blood pressure that seems to be maintaining itself. I realize now that throughout this God is manifesting his comforting presence by giving while taking away at the same time. But blessed be His Name!
