My dad went to the hospital today after three days of flu-like symptoms. Turns out he has a bowel obstruction and may need surgery - CT scan will determine that, I believe.
One of my sisters is a nurse and she was the one who called with the details. Sounds like he's been through this before - maybe at the same time as the surgery to remove a stomach aneurysm, seven years ago - and she said he's really worried. Hopefully the pain meds and knowledgeable docs will put his mind at ease.
I'm trying not to stress as I wait for an update. I pray this will be an easily treatable case for the docs and nurses, and that the reminder of mortality will finally bring my dad to a relationship with God. (Positive thinking here!)
