7pm my father in law's blood pressure crashed again and he was off the the ICU for a return visit. They had just transfered him back to the surgery ward to await his Monday surgery. about
30 minutes after entering the ICO he was rushed into surgery as he was bleeding out from the tumor.
They had planned on removing his entire stumach and spleen tonight in an effort to control the beeding. In the end the bleeding was so bad that they could on manage the 1/3 of the stumach (where the tumor was located) and the spleen (where it had grown into) as the bleed was so bad during the surgery. He's now back in the ICU and recovering. Hopefully we will know more about
the tumor soon. If it's non cancerous he's in the clear, otherwise once he heals they will go back and remove alot more.
Unforetunetly he may have suffered some brain damage during the operation. Only time will tell. We are trying to stay positive.
Thank you again so very much for all your thoughts and prayers.
