Update

Hi Everyone!

We just wanted to give a quick update. Dennis is still up at Huntsman Cancer Hospital. He had his procedure to replace his stent yesterday, and unfortunately he's developed an infection that's keeping him in the hospital longer than we would like. He had to get a PICC line inserted from his arm to his heart (same kind he had for chemo) and they will use this to deliver strong antibiotics. Hopefully, we will be able to bring him home tomorrow, if we can go 24 hours without a fever.

We'll give a longer, much more entertaining, and thoroughly clever post later!

love,
the Clot

Thanks for the update! I've been thinking about you and checking the Ashton blog as much as I check the Alta weather! Dennis, you will now have more empathy for your little patients than anyone ever could. Can't wait to see you well! Love, Kate O

Thanks for keeping us informed.
