Thinking of you both and sending a prayer for you guys, that he will have a quick, but successful surgery and a good recovery.
Now the mantra: drink, walk, drink, walk, as soon and as often as possible. He needs to be on his feet asap. If just for 20 ft at a time to start, walking and drinking water is critical to his fast recovery and feeling much better. Got to flush the toxins, surgery residue, chunks, bits and pieces out. The 10 days or whatever of having the catheter is a time of freedom to drink as much as he wants, with no need to run to the bathroom, so take advantage of it.
