Resting after Surgery

^^^ Mr. Froggy has been with Jack through every surgery, procedure and hospital stay. He and Jack are best buddies. 

Sorry for a little delay in the updates. Been a rough few days for the little dude. X-ray found a kink/blockage in the intestines. (Which explains the nausea and vomiting.) 
The blockage must of happened during the last surgery when a piece of omentum was pulled down and used as a cushion between the colon and bladder. 
Our doctor wanted to try draining the stomach in hopes of the bowel reversing itself, tricking it in a way. In order to do this, Jack has been getting all his nutrition through TPN. (IV Food) 
Doctor gave this three days, taking X-rays daily checking to see if there were any changes.
Negatives on fixing itself. :( 

Jack went in for another surgery this morning (laparoscopic- four little incisions) fixing the kinked intestine. Only a minimal amount of damage was done to the intestine wall and the surgeon feels it should repair itself.
Jack will continue the TPN for a day or two, allowing the intestine to heal. Then switching him over to real food, making sure he's able to eat, digest and poop everything without nausea or vomiting. 
I'm guessing we'll being staying in our Children's hotel suite until Tuesday or Wednesday.
