forgot to mention…surgery went AWESOME

he did GREAT in surgery.  It only lasted 3 hrs or so.  It went exactly as it was supposed to w/ no complications.  The patholgist confirmed that it is only 30% affected- so that 30% of colon is gone and his ostomy was pulled down and re-attached to rectum/anus.  His colon, which usually looks sort of like a horseshoe, now looks more like a question mark.  We will do xray on Sunady to check for gas and make sure there is no build up and that his colon is not dialated at all- if that looks good we feed him on Monday.  GREAT JOB JOEY COOP…and Dr. Levitt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
