Generic Saturday Update For Ben
Not a good day. Ben was re-admitted to Kaiser this morning. They noticed when he was in the ER waiting to have a Picc Line inserted that he is having some rectal bleeding and it is burgundy in color, which means it is coming from deep inside. They are running labs on his still. Dr. said normally they would do another colonoscopy to see what was causing the bleeding, but because Ben cannot take anything orally, they can not prep him for one. If it does not stop bleeding, they may have to do one anyway, but when the colon is not clean, it's hard from them to see anything up there. If the bleeding stops, or if they find what is causing it, they will consider sending him back to All Saints on Monday.
