Surgery was Friday night. They removed about 70% of his small bowel and 60% of his large bowel. The surgeon kept enough to allow him to eat still and not have a colostomy bag. He will not be getting nutrition from food however and will need TPN, total parenteral nutrition to survive.
He is still in the ICU and will hopefully be moving to a less critical room soon. As it is, he's working hard at recovering and we're just here to support him.
