So much has happened this week! The fever has subsided , Louie got 2 units of blood that definitely gave him a bit more zip, the wound vac is out and he's eating a bit of pureed(yum yum) food. The CT scan showed the abcess to be getting smaller and no new worrisome details were apparent. We are moving toward the door once again! The saddest bit of news, however, is that Dr. Saggi is leaving to go to Tulane in New Orleans. We are truly upset about this as he was the the perfect "fit" for us. He is a surgeon with tremendous gastrointestinal experience. We felt we had the best with Dr. Duke, who in turn recommended the best for the next phase, Dr. Saggi. We will definitely be looking to Dr. Saggi to recommend our next physician choice. We are doing fine, but long for El Campo more each and every day. In the words of one of our favorites, Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz, "there's no place like home". (geez, where's a good pair of ruby slippers when you need them?). Thanks once again for all the prayers and support -----Love, Ruthie
