Cody had a scheduled operation today. They joined the small and large bowel together. They are hoping that the large bowel will eventually function as the small bowel would and absorb nutrients. It now means that once cody has healed he will be able to eat approx 1000 calories a day. Cody really misses subway.......meat ball subways to be exact. I did offer to buy one and blend it for him.......but he feels that a sub must be eaten raw NOT through a straw.
Cody has recovered well after a 4 hour operation. While the surgeon was operating it was decided to remove his gall bladder as well. This is normal and is usually the first organ to go, so better to remove it now rather than wait for it to pack up and then operate again.
Here is a photo taken of cody as he was wheeled from recovery to the ward.
