Doug news

 0716071222.jpgHey everyone. Doug’s in the hospital tonight. Has what seems to be partial bowel obstruction which is quite painful. We went to the ER around noon and the pain got worse in spite of the medicine they gave him. So after speaking with his surgeon(yes, Doug has his own personal surgeon), they inserted an NG tube (nasogastric), yep, down the nose and into the stomach. He’s having a great time! The NG tube will attempt to clear out the blockage and I’ll spare you the details and will not be photographing the procedure a la Scott Hodge. We’ll talk to the doctor in the morning to see how he’s doing and if they think surgery is necessary.

Please pray for this to be minor. He hates being sidelined and he’d really like to be at rehearsal Wednesday. Pray for special blessings on our friends who are taking care of our kids. More later!

    Doug must not be feeling to well at all, as that picture makes it appear as though he has a Cubs floppy hat on his head. Not the Doug I know! Praying that he is on the mend quickly.

    Hi Joni:

    I am praying for your entire family! Give Doug a big ol’ hug for me. Keep us posted.

    What hospital is Doug in? Should we send cards, etc. to your house or the hospital?

    Love and prayers,
    Beth (Doug’s ol’ friend from Hamilton)
