Surgery went well, stayed in Delta Memorial 6 days. The re-attachment of my large intestine failed the first few tries, but he finally got it together without a leak. Because it was tenuous he performed a temporary ileostomy on my small intestine on the right side which will ease the load on the colon for the next month or so. More baggies ugh! It can be reversed with a relatively minor procedure. I’m a bit disappointed that I still have mis-routed plumbing, but it should be corrected soon.
We will be staying home for the 4th of July, watching the fireworks from our back porch which has a view over the lake. They launch fireworks from the lake edge so it should be a nice view.
