This afternoon I went to see Stephen in the hospital. He is resting a lot and still has quite a bit of pain and swelling after his operation. The doctor came in to see him around 6:30pm and after checking the dressings, found some signs that Stephen might have a perforated intestine or colon. There is a strong likelihood that they will have to operate again, but for tonight they are keeping a close eye on the situation and will see what develops in the next few hours. Please keep praying for Stephen because it will be a long road back to health, and he is definitely not out of the woods yet. Pray specifically:
-for peace for Stephen and his family
-that the doctors will be able to discover if there is a perforation and that they will be able to close it
-that the remaining infection will be cleared up completely
I will continue to post news as it becomes available.
