Sorry for the delay.

11/20 All is going very well. Nancy is walking some, eating and continues to improve. I was with her during an ultra sound and her new liver is functioning very well, excellent blood flow, not much abdominal fluid and so on. The surgeon confirms my assessment. He simply said “this is a healthy liver.
I’ll be in touch. Love, Joe
11/21 Some problems today. White cell count is elevated probably due to lack of GI motility. Are doing blood and urine cultures and are giving, IV antibiotics. Liver values are dropping towards normal. Today's ultrasound looks good. X-rays show ilius so they passed a N/G tube to relieve GI gas. Sleeping well.

Nancy,

Keep improving and one day soon you will be up and about and living life to the fullest.

Joe, please give our friend a squeeze for us.

You are both in our prayers.

Love, Karen and Bob

Dear Nancy, Everyone at the Animal Hospital has you in their thoughts and prayers. We are all keeping our distance physically and waiting until you're more stable until we visit. We won't take any risk of you catching anything from our gang. We know how serious this is! Because we love you we're staying away for awhile. See you soon! Cliff, Karen and AVAH Staff xoxo

It's just a little hiccup. You are in good hands and there is so much love around you it can only get better.
