Kayden is out of surgery and things went "well"
The surgeon said they found remnants of the block kong in his stomach and small intestine and also found what looked like a piece of a gardening glove stuck in the area where the stomach meets the small intestine (forgot the technical term). I noticed about 2 weeks ago that one of my gloves (not gardening) had the thumb chewed off by one of the dogs. Is it possible that thing has been in his stomach this long?
Anyway, one of the pieces of the kong pierced his small intestine so they had to remove a section of his intestines and reattach it. The surgeon said they flushed it with saline and there was no leakage but no matter how well the surgical technique is there is a 8-11% of a re-tear over the new few days. She also said his white blood cell count was unusually low but it could have been due to the foriegn body but she definitely wants to monitor that over the next few weeks.
They have him on morphine and are starting him on anti-biotics because of his low white blood cell count and will be keeping him for the next few days to monitor him. Of course his surgeon is getting ready to leave town today so they will be handing him over to the other resident surgeon and resident surgeon intern
