We would like to update you on my Dad (Joe), again thank you all
he had surgery three weeks ago to remove a blockage NOT CANCER! between the intestine and stomach,which was causing the bowels not to work. Mom took him back to the hospital because his stomach began to extend they drained 3 1/2 quarts of fluid from the stomach cavity and took him back in surgery repaired hole, the bowel is still not working, they took him down for x-ray last night found another blockage, they are calling another Dr. in this afternoon. I'm leaving Rachel now going back to the hospital he's in St.George. I will do my best to keep all of you updated on his condition. Thank you forr the cards and inquiries.
Also to those who have made reservations or ordered lately I'm sorry I've been with my parents so I've fallen way behind. Don't blame our staff it's entirely me.
again thank you all
