Emergency Surgery

Had a scare over the weekend. On Saturday, May 10, I felt a pain in my abdomen.

Quick summary: A small part of my intestines got “twisted” and the blood flow was cut off. I was in extreme pain and life pretty much stopped.

My wife rushed me to the emergency room, “Indy Style” and within an hour or so I underwent a CAT scan. They called in a surgical and recovery team and once they arrived I was rushed into surgery. They “untwisted” the intestinal loop, watched the purple color disappear, and sewed that piece to my colon.

This is kind of a gross summary of what happened, but the surgeon said that it was actually life-threatening and in a matter of hours could have been dramatically worse.

Thank you for all the prayers, I am doing MUCH better right now. That’s three major surgeries in the past 15 months. Time for a break. The prognosis is very good with a full recovery in sight.

God is good! w00t!
