Hospital Update

March 11, 2008

Yep, still in the hospital. The general consensus is that I have a bowel obstruction, but there’s some un-clarity about why. Some doctors are posing something to do with Crohn’s Disease, while others are almost certain I don’t even have Crohn’s.

So, it’s a lot of wait-and-see-ing. Blockages like this caused by complications to surgery are common enough and generally go away on their own. Tomorrow I’ll have another scan, more in-depth than my emergency CT yesterday, to get more details.

Until then, I can drink clear fluids but not eat, and the nurses are keeping me comfortable with morphine derivatives and anti-nausea meds. I’m awake, alert and aware and thus welcome visitors, if you’re so inclined.

And I do like the theory that the notion that I have Crohn’s disease at all might just be totally wrong.
