My Dad

My Dad had Emergency Surgery last night.

He and Mom had the flu and Dad didn't get any better and lost 8 lbs in 2 Days. His Dr. wanted him to go to the ER to get checked out. During his testing they found that he had "Free Air" in his abdomen. Not knowing where it was coming from required him to have the exploratory surgery tonight.

The good knew is the Dr found nothing of great concern. She felt it might have been some sort of perforation or leak somewhere that had burst but then sealed itself. Or a "Air Cyst" that had burst. They had to make a pretty good incision to check everything out so He will be in the Hospital for a couple days
