Operation Update

The operation went well today, the doctors were very happy about the outcome. They said that he has everything in the proper place, so that's a blessing, Thank you for the prayers. The next process is for him to be able to eat, he has been only on a drip and medicine regimen. They will see how he does with milk and then they will wait untill he passes some fecal matter into the colostomy bag. After that they will keep him for a few more days and then they will let him come home, we can't wait, maybe he will be our Valentine baby.
Arthur and I got to touch him last night, it was wonderful, he had his eyes wide open the whole time just staring at us. His hair has pretty much been all shaved off and he has very long feet. Rhonda snuck in for a brief moment before the nurse caught her and sent her back outside, but at least she was able to see him one last time before her big trip back home.
