Hi all, thanks for your support. Well Scott is in the hospital again. They opened him up last night and said his bowels were a mess. There were adhesions and perforations all throughout. They also found some white spots on his colon. Surgeon said this could be dead cancer cells from chemo, or it could be live cancer cells forming. They sent samples to pathology, so we need to wait a couple of days for results.
He was in surgery for almost 4 hours. Surgeon said he cleaned him out but they couldn't close him up due to distension (sp?) so they have a piece of mesh over the wound for now. This is so freaky!! We are both fans of the TLC show "Trauma..Life in the ER" and have actually seen this type of surgery done. Scott will probably be in the hospital for at least a week, maybe longer. He can't eat for 2-3 weeks (he is not happy about that!). I will keep you all posted.
Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. I hope all is well for you and your families.
PS. Spongebob...I don't use 295...I use 695, the Beltway, and it sucks!!
