From my mom:
Hi everyone,As always, your prayers are appreciated.
Sam has continued to worsen since he was admitted to the
hospital 10 days ago.
Yesterday he began to vomit blood and was moved
to ICU. he had a scope, but
there was so much in his stomach they
could not find the source of the blood.
His diabetes has damaged his
stomach so it takes hours or days to digest a meal. (this is not new).
don't know what the CT abdomen showed yesterday.
scope they could not take him off the ventilator because his breathing got much
over the weekend. He is still at Memorial , now in room
He was stable after the scope, and was finally resting
after fighting to breath for a while.
He is sedated, but can possibly
hear me, according to the icu staff.
He is expected to be
able to recover from this episode. I will let you know
