It’s all gone to hell in a hand basket…

My husband had emergency surgery last night for a perforated bowel. I am operating on about 1 hour of sleep in a 24 hour time period.

Charlie has school today so I will be getting him up in a few minutes. Dad stayed with him last night from about 7:30pm until I got home at 3am or so.

I will be back up at the hospital around 8:30am or so. I have started a list of things I need to get done and people to call.

He lost about 1/3 of his colon last night and will have to wear a bag for about 3 months before reconstructive surgery can take place. The surgeon said it was a nasty mess of sepsis and a huge hole.

Please pray for us. That is all I can go on right now.
