Matt's home again!
On Friday, Matt had his most recent drain replaced with a larger one in an attempt to drain bile that had pooled in his abdomen. While that procedure to install a larger drain was successful, unfortunately, this newest drain hasn't functioned any better than the previous one. The surgeon determined that at this point, given the fact that little headway has been made in clearing up the rest of the pooled bile by way of numerous medical procedures, rather than keep Matt in hospital and subject him to repeated attempts at these same medical procedures, the best course of action is to send Matt home and let his body slowly heal. By taking this course of action there is a small risk of the bile becoming infected, requiring Matt to return to the hospital. Please pray for God's healing touch; that no infection would set in and that Matt's body would quickly absorb the remaining bile.
