Good news and bad news. The bag on Pilar’s esophagus is cleared and okay. There does not appear to be necrotic tissue. The bad news is that the blockage is in her stomach. there’s a pile of concrete-hard old food that prevents her from digesting and getting nourishment. That’s why she’s always been so thin. They don’t know yet whether it can be treated.
It’s not a death sentence, but she sure as hell ain’t out of the woods yet.
