We’ve been back home for a few days and it seems to be sticking. Joey is in much less pain than he was while he was waiting for his ERCP. That said, he still has pain pretty much every day, in addition to his chronic pain. This comes from various sources: liver, bowel, and headaches with a variety of causes. He is doing so-so and will not get better (as in for real better) until he has the sinus surgery he needs (hopefully this will only leave him with his migraines and liver-caused headaches) and until he has a liver transplant. He is not listed for transplant yet; we hope that the assessment tests can be done by April, but we are still waiting to hear about dates.
Speaking of dates, we had a great double with Richard and Caroline on Saturday night. Went to Yuk Yuk’s and all three of the comedians were actually funny. It was so nice to get out and do something semi-normal. We miss semi-normal. But home and as-normal-as-we-can-be-for-now is pretty good too.
