Super fast update

This will be a quick update as I don't have a whole lot of time.
Eli's lovenox levels came back off still so we are adjusting the dose and will redraw at 2am wednesday morning.  Also we are still working thru feeds, fluids,IV pumps and supplies and hickman supplies and lovenox and all of those things ordered.
Lastly we met with his GI doc today.  He spent some time going over the biopsy findings.  They showed blood cells and immune cells all thru the intestines full of iron.  He has no idea what's going on but they are pretty sure they know what's causing it.  He ordered 2 full pages of lab tests and we drew those today (from the awesome) and then he will be scheduling Eli for a liver biopsy.
Everything is pointing to the liver.  Multiple docs over the last few months have suspected liver problems, some labs have also pointed to it.  So now they are seriously ready to investigate the liver.  We are nervous.  This is one body part we don't know much about we just know you need it.
We will update more as we know more.
