Personal Updates by Gibby and/or his family.

Dad went in for ERCP today. We spoke at length with Dr. Tang before hand. He seemed like a wonderful doctor. He said he tried to see what was wrong and apparantly one of his stents had done a 180 degree turn and was now shaped like a U or V rather than straight. The other stent was completely blocked with sludge or other material which he took brushings of. Around 8:00 they took blood and came back with a diagnosis of pancreatitis and no change in bilirubin. We had hoped it would go down.
We are all hoping the pancreatitis will resolve quickly and that they will be able to drain him by tomorrow with percutaneous stents or somthing.
Thank you once again for your faithfullness and kind thoughts and prayers.
