The doctor finally came in with the results of the scope. They were not able to see what exactly was causing my mom to bleed. There were no active sites of blood that could have been the culprits. But my mom suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and they suspect the bleeding came from a rupture of the esophageal varices (enlarged veins at the lower part of the esophagus). She lost a lot of blood and her blood count was very low. They gave her more blood throughout the night to make up for the blood loss. The biggest and scariest part of the doctor's speech was when he told us if she would have lost one more pint of blood she wouldn't be here.

But tonight she finished the last of her transfusions and the nurses disconnected all the tubes from her arms. They are going to continue to monitor her levels tonight and she'll hopefully be able to be discharged tomorrow.

I am thankful to everyone that kept our family in their thoughts and prayers.
