Yesterday evening, we finally got to see my attending physician and learn the results of my latest CT scan. My pancreas no longer appears to be inflamed and my C Reactive Protein blood test is down to 1.6 this morning. Additionally my white blood cell count is within normal ranges again. So last night they removed the feeding tube and I got to eat my first real meal in weeks. I'm feeling good and it appears my tests bear that out, so hopefully I will be going home soon.
Thanks to everyone for the e-cards, blog comments, letters and other support. When things get rough in the hospital, it's wonderful to be reminded of those who care. Thanks and blessings to all!
