Update the Update

My mom just called. The doctor came and told her my dad is out of surgery now. He said that his appendix was inflamed more than he has ever seen before and is surprised that he wasn't complaining more about the pain (but that's the Padot way I guess). He has a tube coming out of the incision, because there is so much fluid in there so it is there to help drain some of it out. He has a tube in his nose down to his stomach so in case he vomits from the anesthesia he will still be able to breath. The doctors said that he will need to stay in the hospital for 4 or 5 more days (usually it is within 24 hours but because it was so inflamed they want to make sure he doesn't have any more infections in his body so they will have him on antibiotics through IVs for the next couple days). My mom said she will call back tomorrow and let me know how he is feeling. My grandma and aunt are there at the hospital with my parents, so hopefully that will help to raise the morale. I'll update you with any more info I may get.
