Cowart's Common Room

It has been a very 'non-Halloween' scary time here having spent the last 2 days in the hospital sitting beside my husband. He was rushed in with severe pain early on Thursday morning and he turns out to have a blocked bowel. Fortunately he now seems to be improving - he came off the morphine this afternoon. (Surgery has not yet been ruled out if the problem doesn't resolve itself in the next couple of days, though we are told this will be last resort. A tube which has been inserted into his stomach seems to be helping at the moment.)
Scary how quickly things can change...we had been enjoying a lovely meal with a visitor just before he started to get the pain.
Please think positive purple thoughts for my wonderful husband.

Pondside's Avatar It's good to hear that he is in the hospital - a blessing that you were able to get to one. I hope he improves hourly and that there'll be no need for surgery.
