Prayers for you and DH!  The surgery should greatly improve his quality of life.  Very best wishes to both of you.

Roger came through the surgery. The doctor could do robotics on the one above his navel. But the one at the top of his stomach couldn’t be fixed that way. There is a 5 inch incision where the doctor went in and repaired the hernia and had to tie the mesh to his ribs. Not the best scenario but the doctor said there was no other way. 

So with all the repairs, his bladder won’t empty on it’s own, yes, Foley Catheter now in place.  No sleep the first night they couldn’t get his pain under control. BP up dangerously high due to pain, meds increased. Blood Sugar up/down. They give him insulin to bring it down, so he bottoms out.  Needless to say we’re still in the hospital.  Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers going up. I feel them holding me up and see them working through Roger. 

Tomorrow is gonna be a better day! 




Hang in there Sandy, still sending hugs and good wishes/

Prayers continue.  What you described going on is not unusual.   Hopefully today will be better.  Take care of you, too.  Did you spend the night?

 Stomach X-ray this morning showed he has Ileus. Which I understand isn’t uncommon. Plus constipation.  Now waiting to see what they are going to do. Waiting to see what dr wants to do.

 He’s finally asleep and has been for nearly 3 hours. After 3 nights of nearly no sleep.  Yes I have gone to the apartment a few times, mostly staying here with him.

An ileus is a fairly common post-op event.  Hopefully it will resolve soon.  Take care of you.  Prayers for his recovery continue.

Well after 7 days hubby came home yesterday evening.  Still hasn’t had a bowel movement except with enema, then not much. But his operation for the hernia went very well and he’s healing great. Thanks for your prayers and thoughts. Now to finish healing....and POOP

Prayers continue.  Glad he is healing but recovering from an ileus is a problem in itself.  Can he walk around a little?  That often helps.  I'm sure your daughter will keep an eye on him.

Yes, he’s been using a walker in the hospital. I hope he will continue at home. He’s very stubborn when I suggest something.
