What a day. Dicks pain continued to increase last night so he had a CAT scan at 11:00am. I was on my way home with our daughter for a few hours while a friend stayed with Dick at the hospital. She called and said the doc might want to do surgery I had to turn around which just crushed our daughter. By 5:00 we got the call that they wanted to do surgery today and we met the surgeon at 6:00pm. He said he wanted toto do surgery at 7:00. I kissed Dick at the OR doors at 7:15 and got the call that it was done at 8:45! The surgeon had said 3 hours, maybe more. Dicks bowel was caught up on an adhesion that went from his front to his back and the doc had to just snip, snip and the bowel was free and started moving. They said the part that was hung up was bruised but the think it will recover but they will watch it. And, within 30 minutes he pooped! He is resting now and his pain is gone in his stomach. Incredible. Now praying for no problems in recovery and that the colon bounces back ok
Thank you for all your support. You are all priceless!
