And… we’re officially back in the hospital again. So much for being asleep in our own bed by sunrise. Up all night, two days in a row, fucking sucks.
Last night they suspected another urinary tract infection, but immediately ruled it out after doing a urine culture test. Then they did a contrast CT to check his intestines for blockage. Guess what? I’ve been right all along! A little too right. He has obstructed intestines and also adhesions. After four months of “issues” with this, and two abdominal surgeries, I finally hear the term adhesion. After doing some research this morning, I find that almost every person who has abdominal surgery develops adhesions. Not a single person mentioned that to us during our journey. Sometimes adhesions can twist and pull the intestines causing blockage. Adhesions are scar tissue that develop between the organs/intestines in the abdomen during and after surgery. This makes perfect sense! This, coupled with the narcotics and initial trauma. Sounds like we can dismiss food poisoning from the sushi he had the night before.
As of now he is doing slightly better. They stuck an NG tube up his nose that goes into his stomach to suck out the juices. It’s very uncomfortable. He still has a bad stomach ache, but at least the hurling has stopped.
