Dr. Dave, Daniel’s surgeon, spent a lot of his day yesterday cutting back adhesions (old internal surgical scars) and confirming the anatomy, cause, and best solution for Daniel’s intestinal blockage.
By the grace of God, the power of prayer, and Dr. Dave’s meticulous skill, we found what seems to have been the problem and a new route for things to flow through was created, bypassing the problem.
Daniel is recuperating, but for now he can’t eat or drink- until it’s clear that his bowel has woken back up and started functioning after the shock of being pulled out and cut open. It will be several days before we can do the ultimate test of letting him try solid foods.
Above is a picture of me, drawn by Daniel. As you can see, I apparently have no problem getting nourishment. To the left of the picture, you can see Daniel and his sister. He gave me this right after his operation.
Thank you for your prayers.
And thanks to all of those who reached out and sent donations to help cover some of the expenses of Daniel’s stay.
Grace and Peace,
