Chad's surgery went well, he's resting now. He finally got back to his room last night around 11:45. The doctor came and spoke to me right after surgery to let me know how it went. Let's just say, not what they thought.
The original diagnosis was that the gallbladder was just blocked and they would remove it laproscopically, a few small holes and remove the gallbladder through one of them. We were informed that if anything changed than they would need to go the traditional route and make an incision. Well, that's what they needed to do. After they started the procedure and they were able to see his gallbladder it was more than they expected to see. It was actually gangrenous, yup that's right gangrene. From what the doctor told us, it must have been lying there from when he first went to the hospital and his body being as sick as it was just accepted it. When the new cells came in they saw that there was something wrong and started to fight, which is good news. The outcome if we were to go home and they waited may not been good to say the least. The next step is to closely monitor him for possible signs of infections and hope that he heals quickly.
