January 11th, 2010 (Monday night) Update from Inga

Hello all! Ken's stomach had not been moving the liquid food that was coming in via the G-tube that was 'installed' last Wednesday, (an external tube that goes directly into the stomach), so they placed a tube inside of that G-tube, and extended it past his stomach and into his intestine. He said he didn't even feel it, so that's good.

They are talking of sending him home. I'm not sure when yet, but they seem to be leaning that way. He had me pack up all his extra stuff just in case it is soon. He will return home but have to go every day to receive radiation. His chemo is finished for now, but he may have another in six weeks or so. He has really tolerated it well, so far. Hopefully that will continue.

We still have to keep the visitors to a minimum, even if he's at home. He is still in a very dangerous place in his treatment.

I think the days ahead are going to be a lot of wait and see. We'll keep you posted.

Love to all,
