Tuesday Afternoon

The doctors are waiting for Jack's kidneys to function at 100% before they put him through surgery.  Though they don't expect there to be any lasting damage or treatment needed for his kidneys, his body has been through a lot and the kidneys are still not up to par. 

The current estimate is that they hope to do surgery on Friday to close the large wound near his right armpit where the skin is completely gone.  (It is a patch approximately 6 inches across and 3 inches wide.) 

Depending on how his kidneys are functioning, Jack may be allowed to go home on Sunday or Monday of next week.
