Update on Joe

We are home from the ER. The doctor said that Joe had gall stones, but they want to wait until his lipase (pancreas) levels are rechecked before they decide on a course of action to deal with it. The ER doc feels that the gall stones are/were causing the pain, but is not sure why the lipase levels are elevated. Apparently they do not like to operate without getting the pancreas under control. The solution for that is a clear liquid diet. So we will go back tomorrow to Kaiser and have more blood work drawn and go from there. We will keep you updated as we know, but it looks like he will have his gall bladder out before the end of the week.
