It was determined that the dilatation was too aggressive and that his esophagus and maybe even his stomach sustained too much damage. He is going on Carafate. That should coat his stomach (and esophagus) if I can get him to swallow it rather than putting it in his g-tube). His bleeding has slowed down and when we check his stomach contents; it is mostly old blood. The Carafate should protect and allow him to heal.
It's supposed to be almost 60 degrees today so we are planning on going home and walking to the park.
Thanks for your prayers and assistance.
