I'm sorry that I haven't kept this up better. I explained on my blog that I found that once he was home...I was too busy to keep writing a post everyday...and was taking a break from blogging. I neglected to finish up here with the same message. He's home and doing pretty good. His incision is clean and looks wonderful. Bandages are off and he is able to be up and around the house. He has, however, had some problems with his intestinal tract. I took a stool sample to the hosp. lab this morning and it will be tested and we should hear the results in 3-5 days. In the meantime...he's not a happy camper, with his meals. He had to go back to a liquid...soft ...diet. He's not known for his patience and he really wants a hamburger. TV doesn't help with all the food commercials. Once we get the results and the dr. knows what to do...I think he will cheer up. It's only been a little over a week, since surgery, and I think he's doing great.
