I am feeling like we need a lot of prayers right now...Toby has been admitted to the hospital 3 times since Nov 6. Just admitted him again early this morning, Today the Dr was brutally honest and said he feels like "the end is near".  We have always been told that liver damage was a possibility as a result of all the seizure meds he has been on. Today, it has become a reality. They are running some tests again today, and will update me later. He was just admitted from Dec 27 -30, they ran a lot of tests to rule out as much as they could. They plan to run some of the same tests again today just to see if anything has changed. As of this morning they strongly feel his liver is not processing as it should. My heart is broken beyond belief right now. I am going back to the hospital soon to cuddle with my boy. Just hoping we can get a little more time with him, or better yet, maybe the Dr is wrong. Your prayers would mean so much right now!

UPDATE: We brought Toby home this morning. They ran more tests yesterday, as well as extracted fluid from his very swollen abdomen.  The pancreas was very dark in the most recent ultrasound. They also found very abnormal cells in the fluid. After the extended testing they now feel he may have matastiaic cancer, pancreatic cancer. The Dr's do not feel he is strong enough at this time to put him through any further testing or procedures. After in depth discussions with the Dr last night, and this morning, it was decided I would bring him home and keep him comfortable. I hope this was not a mistake to bring him home but the Dr said there really wasn't any more they could do for him other than keep him comfortable. I wanted him to be in his home environment where he would be the most comfortable and be snuggled and cuddled as much as he wants. Still remaining hopeful and praying for a miracle!
