Surgery update..

Nathan's surgery took about 2 hours. He is spending the night at the hospital. We saw him this afternoon after surgery and he seemed to be doing as well as can be expected. The doctor removed many adhesions in his abdominal cavity and on his liver, high in his diaphragm. Hopefully, this will cure the pain. Although, the adhesions could return anytime. Surgery is both the cause and the cure. Some people are more prone to grow adhesions than others. Nathan may be one who has the tendency to grow adhesions. The doctor also removed his appendix and did a repair to the site where he had a stomach tube many years ago. The surgeon told us he stapled him back together in a few places. Nathan should be coming home tomorrow.

That sounds like a lot. Hopefully things will seem better now.
