Today was the best day so far and I am almost to scared to say it in case it get taken away. Dad was so happy to see us this morning, he asked us for a hug & a kiss. Dr M was happy this morning too, though mom seemed concerned about there being drainage. Dad was so positive and grateful for today. He was so happy to be alive.
I really hope and pray that things continue to get better each and every day. I love my dad and want him to come home. Please can the sutures hold so that his leaks all heal up well, so that his wound may close up. Please can my dad get better so that he may come home.
Thank you Lord for giving us all the strength to get this far. Thank you for your grace and kindness. Thank you for your healing power. Thank you for today.
Cheri is right, it is only with prayer that we can find our way. I have so much to pray for once my dad gets better. Prayer is powerful.

surgery went well, doctor managed to find the leak and stitch up. we just have to hope that it holds until it heals. dad recovered well from the anaesthetic. this morning he was SO happy to see us. he is so glad to have made it through the surgery. they were not able to close the wound yet, but if the intestine heals then it will dry out and close on its own. please keep sending positive thoughts that this last little bit will finally heal.
