Facebook update [pic] from Help Anton

We had a nice and uneventful night! I slept from about 8pm until 6am and feel much better. They were able to go down on anton's Peep (the pressure air is going through the vent) from 15 to 13. Everyone has told me he is already doing much better today than yesterday. The surgeon came in to check on and look at his incision, he said it looks great. I literally couldn't believe it when I saw it. It is just a perfect straight like with no damage to his skin. It is healing so quickly too which is a miracle because none of his wounds are healing right now. He said we aren't out of the woods yet but he is very pleased. Anton started pooping yesterday which is a HUGE deal since he hadn't popped since Tuesday night and he had half of his large intestines & colon taken out. They might start feeds today at a very small rate. The surgeon said they like to do this early on to help his gut start working again. Anton is breathing on his own when he is awake and still totally dependant on the vent when he is sedated. They want him sedated and not working to breathe so that his lungs can continue to heal. Praising God for all the progress that Anton has made. For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. Romans 11:36 via Help Anton November 30, 2015 at 07:00AM
