He's getting better..

Nathan had his one week post-op visit to the surgeon this morning. He is doing well. The doctor pulled out the staples in two of the incisions. Everything appears to be healing well. The worst spot is where the surgeon repaired the old stomach-tube incision area, it had developed a large piece of hardened scar tissue that the doctor removed and then re-stitched the area to close it up, it had been open all these years (22) and looked like another belly button, we never realized that wasn't normal. The only place Nathan is feeling pain now is where that is healing. It's very tender. He's looking much better and his color is returning. He spent the summer being very pale from not feeling well. I'm so glad to see him feeling better and returning to his cheerful self.
