Hi. I hope that things are going okay. We have been thinking about
you. Dillon and I came home from the hospital yesterday evening. He was in the hospital for 15 days. HOWEVER, his bowels were very slow to really get working. After the first day of food going in, the bowels decided to slow right down and refuse any more...so ....even though he was in for a long time it was not that bad...mostly waiting around for his bowels to decide to play by the rules. He has now been on solid food for 72 hours and all seems to be working well. I know that most people are leaving the hospital about
day 6 so hopefully you are heading home soon. If not...know that you are being looked after well and when the time is right you will be home! Please let us know how you are doing.
