He's Out

He's out and doing well!  They scoped all 20 ft of Ryan's small intestines just to be thorough and make sure there were no missed issues.  Dr. B did find a "dent" or kink of sorts just near his ostomy site which may explain why food was slow to come out and why he felt so sick after eating.  Dr. B called it a partial obstruction which will make a person just feel totally sick!  They resected about 2 inches of bowel to revise the stoma and according to Dr. B he is all clear now. 

This surgery should hopefully allow him to tolerate food, eat and pass it normally, and be free from sickness and being miserable.  We hope he is up and running soon!  His medical orders are to be sitting up in a chair by 3 pm today and sipping juice by 4 pm.  If I know these nurses like I think I do, they'll let me boss him into a walk by this evening ;)

Prayers still needed for a full recovery and that this surgery will resolve the mechanical errors in his bowel.
