Dad in Hospital

Dad has been in the hospital (Cleveland Clinic) since July 24th. He has severe colitis. No medicine helpe. The last resort is surgery. They performed the surgery Tuesday the 31st. His entire colon was removed. he came through the surgery ok. Now the recovery begins. He has good hours and bad hours. Today and last night was bad. He could not keep anything down. His stomach wasn't working right yet. So everything stayed in the stomach. They had to put that tube up his nose and down his throat to get his stomach pumped. Mom was there. She told me what happened. I think they gave dad a milk sedative so he can sleep since he couldn't last night.

I hope tomorrow is better.
