7th Day

The surgeon took Doug back to the OR hoping to close the incision, but the bowels are still full of gas so he left it open. They will try again on Friday. He has been given a strong laxative but still no action.

He can have ice chips but he isn’t supposed to swallow them. Once they melt he uses suction to remove the water from his mouth.

He is currently enjoying the Penguins Hockey game.
