Surgery Success

Bobby's surgery was a success! It took about 30 minutes longer than the last surgery did so you can bet that I have no fingernails now due to anxious knawing. When the surgeon finally came in to give me the rundown, he said that "it was a mess in there". Apparently, when Bobby got sick, the previous "wrap" around the esophogus loosened and then his stomach worked really hard to reform to the way it has been for the last 29 years. The surgeon said that everything was twisted and contorted all crazy. Everything is back in place and the surgeon prescribed some anti-nausea medicine to treat any sickness before it hits!

Bobby is recovering MUCH faster than the last surgery but is still extremely tired and sore. He was strictly on a clear liquid diet for about 3 days but has since then introduced noodles and even mashed potatoes last night! He wasn't able to keep down solid foods for a good week last time so things are looking good! He is, however, extremely bored and hungry.... I couldn't even imagine having to drink chincken and beef broth for my "big meals", yuck! On the positive side, he has lost about 10 pounds since last Friday! His goal is to lose another 20 so we are going keep him on a balanced, healthy diet as we introduce more foods in!

Thank you for all the prayers and please keep praying for his sanity throughout the remainder of his recovery-

We hope you all had an incredible Memorial Day weekend!
