Update on Fred Nehls (8-28-09)

Thought I would post an update on Fred's medical condition. Yesterday, Fred went in for exploratory surgery and while they were looking they found two polyps which they removed and will have them tested, they also banded off a couple of veins in esophagus and fixed some blood vessels to route blood to his kindeys instead of through his liver.

Unfortunately, he has not been able to keep down any fluid or food so we had to take him back to the hospital today. The doctor said that it looks like his esophagus is really swollen. Not much they can do fo that except spray some stuff down his throat and wait for the swelling to go down. I'll update again when the results of the ployps are received.

Thanks to all of you who have kept us in your prayers, donated to the medical fund or purchased raffles.
