Hi everyone, I just posted this on the ostomy forum and wanted to share with you all as well...
I am sorry to inform you that our dear friend Nat was admitted to the hospital on tuesday for a possible small bowel obstruction sad
He called me earlier this afternoon to let me know, and said that he had a ct scan this morning,but had not yet gotten the results.He seemed to be in good spirits(his usual goofy self,hehe) and said that he felt okay, but possibly from the pain meds.
He doesn't have his laptop with him, so I told him that I would do a post to let you guys know what was up.I know that he thinks the world of you and truly appreciates all the support and love here.
He also said to tell you guys that he will check in as soon as possible, and of course, I will keep you posted on any news that I hear.Hopefully he will be going home soon and be well enough to keep his original date for the big surgery in november.
I would also like to ask you all to please keep Nat in your thoughts and prayers.He is a super special friend to me and it breaks my heart to hear that he is going through this.I promise to keep you guys up to date.
