So the surgery FINALLY happened about 7 pm yesterday. He got back to his room around 10 pm. He had a HORRIBLE night. The main gallstone was HUGE and they had to cut the incision bigger just to get it out. He had so much pain all night that he couldn't stand it. The wound started bleeding a lot and the nurse ended up calling the docs in at 3 am. Finally around 8 they got him on some different meds and we got him another blessing and he felt a lot better after that. Tonight his stomach is really distended and he is in a lot of pain again. They have to pump gas in when they do the surgery and there is no way to expel it. He is going to have a rough go for a few days but they are hoping to release him on Friday. Will post a nasty pic when I get home to my computer. Thanks for the prayers and well wishes and all the wonderful help.
