Glenn had a colonoscopy and endoscopy today and the source of the bleeding is from diverticulosis, but the Dr didn't see a specific active bleeding sight at the time. He is still bleeding so he is having a scan of his abdomen right now to see if a specific source can be seen. He got another unit of blood today and a unit of platelets. We got the report of  last weeks bone marrow biopsy and the marrow is making blood cells and platelets the way it is supposed to, and the light chains are stable, not increasing any more. So we know that the low blood counts aren't a bone marrow issue. He is still feeling ok. We know we'll be here at least another day, and probably longer because they will want him to not bleed for at least 24 hours before they let him go....... tbc
