After several days of silence from Brian, I sent him an e-mail. The following just came back.
Believe it or not, I'm back in the hospital again. I landed up checking in Saturday afternoon after playing an 11:00 funeral with almost unbearable stomach pains. It turns out that it could be mild pancreanitis. However, there is still one more biopsy that needs to be figured out and I won't know that till tomorrow. I'm pretty much on a clear liquid diet for now and the pain has gone down some. Luckily this hospital has an internet cafe, but this is the first chance I've really had to come down here and actually had the strength.
I'll try to keep you all posted as much as I can, but if you could let the nation of snarks know, I would much appreciate it.
Unfortunately there is only a 15 minute limit.
