When they did the endoscopy yesterday on Mark, every time the scope touched the stomach, it would bleed. There is a long name for what the Gastrp DR told me regarding the stomach but they feel it may be being caused by something wrong with the liver. There is a bleeding problem in the esophagus also. Having the bleeding over time could explain the pain, nausea and throwing up on a weekly basis at home. He did receive blood transfusions to bring up his Hemoglobin level. Just don't know much yet. We are hoping it is not cancer in the liver or something else that is serious.
We'll find out more when the liver blood tests all come back.
RS, how are you and how is Butch doing? You can write on your thread and I'll look for it.

When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -- Harriet Beecher Stowe
