1. Mr Boy is VERY VERY swollen and hospital staff is worried the swelling could damage internal organs and inhibit healing. Pray that Mr Boy's body will release more fluids to release all the pressure on his body which is causing problems.
2. Please pray that Mr Boy will remain comfortable even when they allow him to wake.
Random things we just learned about Mr Boy's body for the first time because of the surgery (mostly just interesting for Mr Boy to read later in life and things I don't want to forget... so this may be boring for most readers):
-Mr Boy has no appendix. No Appendicitis for him in the future! :)
-His liver is enormous and takes up half of his entire abdomen, just making the surgery more difficult, but also not a big deal.
-One kidney was hiding, but they found it.
-During the surgery they decided to give Mr Boy a wrap around his esophagus to help stop reflux, so they took his stomach and wrapped part of it around his esophagus. This is pretty standard procedure for reflux but it still sounds insane/crazy/cool to me.
