Alright, I failed to mention earlier what is actually going on here. I'm sorry, I'm new to blogging!
For a few weeks he's been having lower abdominal pain, mostly in the morning. He went in for a CT Wednesday afternoon with results showing an inflammation of the bowel and diverticulitis with abscess. He was admitted to North Kansas City Hospital Wednesday evening and has been since placed on a clear liquid diet. He's met with doctors to discuss surgery options, though no plans have been set, at the risk of furthering infection and development of additional conditions. He is currently on antibiotics to reduce the swelling of the abscess and painkillers for better comfort. His pain levels have been kept to a minimum, though he has a fairly moderate pain tolerance. His room is a corner room with a beautiful view of the city, as well as the McDonald's just blocks down, which he was quick to notice! He has eaten jello, which has caused a bit of pain but nothing too severe. Hopefully will be released Monday should everything continue as it has so far.
We appreciate everyone's concern and all your warm thoughts. Much love!
