Doug’s bowels didn’t get moving after surgery. He had a couple fainting spells so they admitted him to ICU and did a CT scan of his abdomen. It appeared that his bowel was twisted so he went back to surgery yesterday at 5pm. It turned out his bowels were full of gas ( called an ileus) and not twisted. The surgeon left the incision open as a precaution so they could check it again if need be. Tomorrow they will take him back to surgery to close it.

Doug is comfortable and stable in ICU. It looks like we will be staying for a while

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
