Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers this week for my baby brother, Louie.
As I mentioned late last week, Louie had to get surgery on his intestines where there was a large mass causing tearing. After the surgery he had a lot of trouble stabilizing his blood pressure and didn't eat for three days.
They gave him a lot of drugs and hooked him up with a feeding tube and slowly but surely he started to get his strength back.
This afternoon he returned home and, though he'll have to stay under serious watch for about 2 weeks, he's already getting back to being his perky self!
I'm sure he's also feeling pretty embarrassed - he's shaved all over his belly, neck, and ankles. He looks pretty silly.
