Updated status on Skyler, with pictures

Hi all, we just got home from the hospital. They found two spots in Skylers stomach that have problems, one is an ulcer on his G-Tube spot, and the other is a "linear erosion" on the stomach wall. So we are going to go get some prescriptions filled for some medicine to give him for both. It is like a drinkable liquid "bandage" for the stomach, sounds pretty wild!




Skyler did very well with the whole thing, he is quite the trooper these days. Kathy is going to the pharmacy and I am taking care of him, but I wanted to check in and let you all know what's up.

Thanks again everyone, I really appreciate all of the nice comments and well wishes on and off the blog,
Sky-Dad

Okay, I can't look at the photos... I'm one of those kind of people. It has to be fake, like Tarantino fake or I can't look.

Poor guy tho' what a trooper.

Being one who has had plenty of stomach issues through the years, here's hoping that the meds help patch him right up.
