As most of you know, my dad has been struggling with several health issues over the last few years. On a recent trip to the Dr. they discovered some abnormalities in his esophageal area that caused the Dr. to schedule surgery to correct the problem.

Due to my Father's present bout with lung cancer, the Dr. decided to schedule a Colonoscopy to check to make sure that the cancer had not spread to other areas of the body before performing the esophageal surgery. He went in yesterday morning and had the Colonoscopy, and was kept for observation due to the existing health issues.

Late last night my Father started running a temp of 104 degrees and his stomach was distended. They monitored him overnight and when the Dr. came in they sent him to X-ray to diagnose what was causing the issue. They found that while doing the colonoscopy they had perforated the colon and he was "leaking" fecal matter into his stomach. He was rushed to surgery this afternoon and he is now in ICU.

Normally this would be something that caught in time would not be much of an issue. But my father's present condition makes it such that he will be in ICU for at least a couple of days and hospitalized for at least an additional week. This is going to cause the much needed esophageal surgery to be delayed several weeks which could exacerbate his existing health issues.

A few thoughts and prayers from my friends here on the Planet for my Dad would be much appreciated.

Update, please Mark.

I know you and he broke down some barriers in recent years. I'm glad you have been able to grow closer. Hopefully that relationship will continue to prosper with him in good health. If not, then I pray he and your family won't suffer long.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers guys....

Dad finally had his first decent night last night....although he still seems to be in a lot of pain. The drainage tube is still there and will be for a couple of more days I am told. He still gets real tired real fast so all conversations are pretty short.

He is now out of ICU and in a regular room...our first good step forward.
