Another hill to climb

Yesterday was a rough day for both Erwin and Ellen. It was very stressful. Erwin was taken for a CT scan but was waiting for hrs for the scan and again more hrs to be picked up and taken back to his room. The good thing is that he is in the surgery ward so the nurses are keeping a much better eye on him this time around, They were promised that they would get the results from the tests that day but that of course did not happen.

Today Ellen had an appointment to see the Dr and when she got there she was told that the Dr. had to consult with the Radiogolist. Finally they got the results which are.......the small intestine is not functioning correctly. The Dr. mentioned the Duodenum was dilated. He seems to think that this problem is related to the stroke. The Dr. just said that it will take some time for him to recover. They are not sure how long it will take to correct this problem.
