The plans have been set for Patrick to come home from this hospital tomorrow! All of his IV pain medications have been discontinued to move him forward with recovery; therefore, he is experiencing more pain today (even a few new pains). Prayer in this area would be greatly appreciated.
Within the last 24 hours, he has begun eating "regular" foods again. His nausea has somewhat subsided, but his digestive functions are still mending. Please continue praying for normal function to return and his ostomy to become active.
Patrick will go home tomorrow will several drains (around his surgical wounds). Over the next several weeks, he will have appointments to remove those drains as well as the staples that close his surgical incisions.
Please continue to lift the Shaws up in prayer ... Both for healing and peace from stress.
