Today wasn’t full of much excitement (which is good!) so there isn’t really too much to update on.  Jaxson had a good day, he caught up on some rest and wasn’t messed with too much by the nurses and doctors. The bleeding in the GI tract has stopped, so he’s just passing old blood. But they’re still closely monitoring him. The GI Doctor on call stopped by and evaluated him. He is on a medicine called octreotide to help reduce his stool output & give his colon a break to hopefully help heal the ulcers.  If everything stays the same tomorrow, they will hopefully go down on the medicine & be off it altogether by Friday & from a GI standpoint he would be able to go home. He will also have surgery either tomorrow or Friday to put the broviac back in.
