Mike was admitted to the hospital last night. This morning we learned he has a significant tear in his esophagus – we’re not sure what it is from, maybe from the cough he caught from me and the kids? The GI patched it and they’re trying to keep Mike as still as possible to see if it will heal. In the meantime, he’s begun running a high fever.
This is not as bad as it was back in 2004 – that was truly life and death. I’m not sure what this is. My dad came to the hospital this afternoon, told me I looked worse than Mike and to go home and sleep. I’ve slept and I’m heading back to the hospital.
Please keep Mike in your prayers and good thoughts that this patch thingie works and that the fever goes away quickly with no big infections. I’ll keep you updated when I can.
