Another Update

Sorry that I haven’t updated everyone in a couple days. Stef is still in the hospital. His NG tube that removes the acid from his stomach is still in place. He’s ready for that to be removed so that he can start eating. His intestines have not woken up yet, so until that happens, the tube stays in. He also had an infection at his incision site. They removed about 8 staples and got as much of the infection out as they could. They then packed the open wound with gauze and taped over it. The dressing and gauze packing has to be changed twice a day. I will be doing this for him when he comes home. They did not re-staple it so that it could heal from the inside out. This has increased his pain over the last couple of days. Thankfully, they have been attentive to his pain and are giving him great pain medications. Please pray specifically that his intestines would wake up. His surgeon will not remove the tube and think about sending him home until this happens. It is so tiring to be at the hospital all day, and I know he is tired of being there. Thanks to those of you who have stopped in and cheered him up. It’s been great to see you. Also, to our wonderful prayer warriors. We are so grateful for your constant prayers on our behalf. I’ll keep you all posted on any new news. Goodnight.

  1. Stef,
    I am up late tonight and I am MAD at your cancer. I am bowing my head right now to ask God to wake up your belly and strengthen you. I KNOW that He is with you and that He hears our prayers.
    Peace to you.
