Doug went for a ride in a wheel chair yesterday evening and took in some fresh Minnesotan air on the balcony. We were accompanied by his nurse Becca because Doug is still on a monitor. The fresh air did wonders and soon after returning to his room he said, ” I feel like i could have a bowel movement”. And so he did. 👍He has been up walking the halls and we are feeling like he has turned the corner.
The abdominal incision is secured with heavy duty sutures. They will remain in place while the incision heals naturally.
We are thankful for this positive turn and for all your good thoughts, wishes and prayers.
