Because of Curtis' "kink" in his bowel, he has lost a tremendous amount of weight the last 6 weeks. (about 20 lbs). We have decided to start IV nutrition. His port will remain accessed all the time and we will do a 12 hour feeding at home. Hopefully the feedings will help him to put on some weight. He is continuing to eat during the day what he can when he feels well. He actually has been feeling better and had more energy. He has been able to work on his Jeep this week and is installing the transmission today with some help from a friend. Here is a pic of his transmission he has completely rebuilt.
