Thank you all for the prayers and support. He has perked up quite a bit over the weekend and is at least coherent. Kidneys seem to be working better but not 100%. Tomorrow the doctors will be back with tests and assess where he's at.
The plus side for me is that I came up to my daughters house and I've been hanging out with my 6 year old granddaughter and taking care of their dogs. Having a BLAST except for the lousy circumstances.

Good to hear....prayers for continuing improvement and healing.

Hi...got home from a delightful couple of days with my granddaughter. My SIL is still improving...not out of the woods but his kidneys are working and they have postponed dialysis to see if his improvement is a trend. Still not sure about his liver and gall bladder, but the fact that he's eating some solids looks good. The family is happy with his care so the shift to U Penn is cancelled unless he has a setback.
Thank you for the prayers.

Well, today's update isn't so good. They are pounding his liver with steroids and won't know any indicated of how that is working for 2 more days. Meanwhile the liver guys are advocating U Penn, so that if the liver doesn't snap to they can work on a transplant.
I feel so bad for my girl. She can't believe what's happening. She's holding up well and being tough but this is so huge and it's looking like a really long haul.

Thanks for the update.  You all remain in our prayers!

Thank you all. Last night they took him over to U Penn. Hospitals don't get much better than that, so we'll see.

As of yesterday my girl says she's happy with the new digs and docs. They are looking at symptom management and nutrition as a first approach, with transplant and dialysis as plan B. Sounds pretty good to me.
Thanks for your support.

As of yesterday, Mike was placed high on the National Transplant list. They are trying to build up his strength while waiting for the right liver to come along.

After being through something similar years ago with my wife on the heart transplant list at least now you have a direction.  That's something.

I'm praying he'll improve and be able to dodge the liver transplant.
