2:30 am: Just got a call from the surgical team. They had been called in by neurosurgery to look at Mike because the C. Diff bug seems to be getting worse (or something like that). The surgeon presented the option to me of operating to remove mike’s entire intestine. I was like, “What the f*ck? He would never survive that surgery. You’re aware that he’s in Status and in full blown DIC?” To which he replied, “Yes, I’m aware. And I completely agree with you. He most likely would not survive this surgery. To be frank, I don’t think he’s going to survive anyway, but I had to call you and give you this option of a surgical procedure.”

“Umm… no.”

Diana’s on the phone with him now. She agrees that operating right now makes no sense at all.
