Under the Knife
On January 17th, Mark checked in to the hospital. That morning he had the pleasant experience of a colonoscopy and stayed the night in anticipation of surgery the next day. The next morning he went in to surgery and had a sigmoid colectomy - about a foot of his colon was removed. They also did a hernia repair while thy were in there. He was in extreme pain the first day but made progress each day. He was expected to be in a whole week but got to come home after five days. He ended up with some bed sores and an infected incision but overall doing well. We are so relieved to have him home and on the mend!
