Operation and induced coma ..
So uncle Charlie went in for his op on Friday afternoon. Unfortunately all didn't go as planned. They removed the scar tissue but also found that part of the bowel had twisted and go infected - they had to make a new stoma. In terms of the actual operation, it went well and they were happy with that. Fast forward Friday evening and he had a really bad night. His heart rate was all over the place and they couldn't get a blood pressure reading. They said that they had the crash bed in there for him something they don't normally do in intensive care apparently! So we were notified yesterday morning, they couldn't make his heart rate stable and that he was deteriorating quickly. We were asked to come in to his bedside. The stuff they were using just wasn't working and said 'his heart rate is not sustainable for life'. Since then, they have tried something different and have stablised his blood pressure to a certain degree but his heart rate is still all over the shop. They thought that he had had a heart attack but have since confirmed this is not the case. They have said there's a tiny bit of improvement. I'm absolutely heartbroken as you all can imagine, I'm really not sure what the outcome is going to be. But I just wanted to say thank you for all your kind messages, idk what I'd do without this forum sometimes
