Surgery on the artery
This morning Dad has surgery. It went well and he came out ok. They went through his stomach which means he is going to be in a lot of pain once he wakes up. There is good news and bad news. The good news is the artery that was bleeding a few days ago is no longer bleeding, the bad news is the artery that was bleeding a few days ago is no longer bleeding. Which means the source of the internal bleeding is unknown. For now they will watch him closely, keep him comfortable and hope his blood count goes up over the next 24 hours. If it does not correct itself then they will do a Colonoscopy. We will update the blog as soon as we know more. Thanks again for all of your prayers.
