Sooooo... Sam has a stricture or blockage, if you will. Not the worst thing in the world, but it certainly doesn't make things easy.
The good things are that Sam is no longer in pain, we are in our own room, Sam is healing nicely from the surgery and we are pretty sure that his current issues are not a motility problem or a shut down in his system. The bad things are that Sam may have to go into surgery again or if the stricture is just due to trama than Sam will heal on his own but this will take some time. The not so good things are that we are stuck at the hospital, Sam has to surgically get a PIC line put into his arm to feed him intravenously, and of course will need some sort of anesthesia for this. We are expecting that this will happen tomorrow. Again please pray that Sam's stricture will resolve on its own and that we get to go home soon. Thanks for checking in.
