Dad again

Mom called and said he's out of surgery and in ICU.

Evidently they found some kind of blockage, presumably where the radiation had fused the intestines together (why they didn't find this when they went in a month ago, I don't know). But for some reason instead of taking it out, they somehow worked a pathway around it, but Mom, not being one to pay attention to details or ask questions, has no idea how or why (I'll ask my sister later, as she pays attention to such important details). They said they put him on a respirator in recovery, but took him off when he moved to ICU.

They said he'll be in there for a week, and then they're going to try to give him food. HOPEFULLY that'll be that...

At least for the next few months. :(
