Dealing With Diverticulitis - Part 6

Don has been improving all week.  He is eating well and the "plumbing" seems to be working right.  His drain on the right side seems to be putting out cloudy and ugly stuff, but the right one is clear and almost nothing.  The right was the one that had 800 ccs of fluid drained out. 

Tomorrow we go back to Swedish and on Thursday he has another CT scan and removal of the drains.  Then we meet with one of the surgeons that did the drain procedure last week.  Next week we meet with the surgeon that will do Don's resection. 

Understandably Don is apprehensive about the resection.  He has been through so much.  But for what he has already gone through I can't believe he is riding his bike to work.  Today he put in 3/4 of a day of work. He was pretty beat though when he came home. Most of the abdominal pain is gone. The skin around the drains is a bit red and still sore to touch but that is about it.

I am amazed how God has blessed us as we have gone through this.  Everyone has been tremendous.  Thanks you so much!!!
