Here is a note I sent out last night, thought I would send to you all as well.
First of all thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Please keep them coming.
We really still do not know what is going on. I just got home and told my mom to call me if anything changes and if I don’t hear from her I will be there first thing in the morning when I drop Madisyn off to school.
We do know the gallon of liquid dad took for prep for his colonoscopy didn’t produce any bowel movements. Yesterday he was fine after he got home but then this morning started sharp pains and it just got worse this evening. He still cannot have a bowel movement. His stomach is twice the size is suppose to be and very very tight. The nurse said it is the tightest she has seen on a patient in a really long time. They immediately admitted him after his x-ray came back. It showed a bowel blockage and a very enlarged and inflamed small intestine.
They have him hooked up to a pump and are pumping his stomach right now. Tomorrow they will talk about surgery. Something is going on and we need to get to the bottom of it. My dad has had stomach problems about all his life :(. He is scared too right now. When the doctor was talking to us, he just kept looking at me and trying to fight back the tears. When the doctor left, we all started crying. It is a very scary situation. He is in alot of pain and dad never complains. I can count on one hand the times I have seen my dad cry and I just lost it in there today.
Please pray they can get to the bottom of this and he can come through this all ok. I am a huge daddy’s little girl and it tears me to pieces seeing him like this. He’s always the strong one so much.
Thanks again for all your prayers. I will update soon. Going back to hospital as soon as I get Madisyn.
