Billy Ray's Home from his Procedure

We are home from Billy Ray’s procedure today.  It went well with no complications with the sedation.  The surgeon did find several areas of that he biopsied. Biopsy report should be back mid next week.  

He needs to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to check on nodules in his throat for possible surgery.  He found significant scar tissue in several other areas and biopsied probably 4-5 areas.  He found what thinks is bacteria so is testing to see what that is.Bottom line is he found several reasons for the pain BR is experiencing (causing the "communication by behavior").  They have tried numerous tests such as MRI's and Catscans and couldn't find it but it has continued.  Hopefully they will be able to isolate and treat it now.

Thanks for the comments and email. We are home.  I am off to take a nap while we still have support staff and will write more tomorrow.

Until next time,
Peggy Lou Morgan
