Post-Op Report

This is the first chance I’ve had to get on here and post an update since Sam’s surgery on Thursday. Dr. Taylor said the surgery went well. She showed me a picture she took of his gall bladder while she was in there and pointed out an inflamed area. She said she thinks he should be feeling much better once he recovers from surgery.

Sam was supposed to get to go home yesterday, but he ended up having to stay an extra night because he hadn’t eaten anything yet and was still needing morphine by IV. So far this morning, he is still hurting quite a bit and having a hard time breathing because of the pain. Most of the pain is due to the gas that was pumped into his abdomen during the surgery. His rectal prolapse is making it difficult for him to release the gas and get relief. He is also very nauseated this morning and hasn’t tried to eat anything yet.

Please continue to pray for his recovery. We would both really like to go home today.
