We're still in the hospital. It is day 7 of this hospital stay but today is one of the better days with Ryan's pain fairly managed and the NG tube pulled.
He had his 4th set of x-rays this morning and it showed no meaningful progress in his intestinal obstruction. That's kind of neutral news because although food is moving verrrrrrrry slowly through him, but the issue is not totally resolved either. So our goal is to be patient, try out a soft diet (toast, cream of wheat, ice cream, etc) and see how he tolerates it.
We will be in the hospital for at least 1 more night, if not more. The important thing to know is that if the obstruction doesn't resolve on its own, he will have to have yet another surgery. Please pray against that!
Keep going Ryan Decker-you can do this!
