Quick update:Mike and I met with Tomas' GI doctor today and he was able to rule out at least one liver problem (it was a big one that would have required a transplant so we are very relieved) but still needs further testing to find out what is wrong. Tomorrow Tomas will have a liver biopsy and the doctors should have a good idea of what they are dealing with by Friday. Unfortunately, for babies a biopsy means general anesthesia. For Tomas that means being back on the ventilator and oxygen and monitors afterwards for 2 days and being sent back to the critical care section of the NICU. His neonatologist said if all goes well he can come home sometime this weekend.
