Jake: Post Surgery News.

Jake went into surgery this morning around 9am. Dr. Franks called me around 11am. She says whatever is going with him is rare and she can't really explain it. His intestines have scar tissue and adhesions built up in them. It caused them to be gnarled and doing weird things. She removed the scar tissue but doesn't know if it will happen again. She also worked out his intestines to the best of her ability so that food can pass thru better. With all the scar tissue the intestines just couldn't push food thru properly, this is why he was vomiting and losing weight.. He will have to be on an all canned food diet from here on out, watered down to be sure it passes. We can only wait & hope this doesn't happen again, if it does the outcome won't be but one option only . . .

Prayers are needed. He'll be in the hospital for 2 days.

The picture on this post is a professional photo taken by my brother in law, who was at the time, a professional photographer. It looks like a postcard. It's him exactly -- happy, goofy, sweet Jakey.
