Wow, this is such great news. I am elated to hear that things are starting to improve. It is so wonderful that these drs have been working with you both to insure a full recovery. After my surgery at Shands in Gainesville, after 9 days with no BM or passing of gas, the drs sent me home. When I started vomitting at home, I had to go back the the ER. I was constantly in and out of hospitals and drs offices for the next 5 years until a one dr decided to go inside and take a look at my intestines. It was then that he found over 25 blockages in my intestines. Now, if a dr wants me to stay in the hosptial, I am always happy to comply.
Please keep up posted on his recovery. I hope you get to go home before the weekend.
