Summarizing a brief communication I had from Mary Stares this evening after her day in the hospital with Abbot Steve:
As mentioned in the last post, the infection in Steve's legs was clearing up, and Steve had a relatively good day Friday.
This morning, however, he had some heart arrhythmia. Beta blockers have been increased to resolve that, and now his heart rhythm again seems stable.
Also, although at one point this week his pain level dropped significantly, that level did not last, and pain management continues to be a major issue. He will remain in the hospital for at least a couple more days. It remains unclear when chemotherapy may resume at this point.
Thanks to all who are chanting often for Steve's well-being.
