I know I owe you all an update, but I haven't felt much like writing.
Greg's condition hasn't changed too much over the past 48 hours. He has pneumonia, but they still don't know what kind. They believe its bacterial, but they're treating for everything. His latest CT scan showed "significant" lung damage from the pneumonia. They don't know yet if its reversible. He also been bleeing pretty steadily from the GI tract, and they've been giving him TON of packed red blood cells and platelets. They actually got his platelets up to 91 as of this morning, but we don't know if that will hold. He hasn't been at 91 for years. But, I'm suspecting that they draw right after they get the platelets in. We'll see what they're at in 24 hours. Blood sugars are all over the place, and his sodium levels are rising.
He's got lots of things going on, and the doctors aren't saying much. I finally asked, point blank, for a prognosis. The lead ICU doc said that, taking into account everything that's happening now, along with his medical condition to start with, the doc estimates about a 70 to 80 percent mortality chance. Not very good odds.
I have to keep telling myself that he's beaten the odds before, and he's fighting now. I don't think he's ready to give up yet.
Please keep the prayers coming.
