I am using the original caring bridge site so that anyone not familiar with Sean’s original health issue that started on December 29, 2017, can go back and read the story.   The updated posts are for his current surgery dated September 17, 2018. 
————On Friday night, December 29, Sean and I were visiting our family in Southern Oregon. We had a wonderful dinner and later that night he woke with the chills and a fever. His chills became uncontrollable shakes. We thought he was coming down with the flu.  I decided to bring him home  but he did not feel like traveling on Saturday so I let him sleep all day. Sunday morning I drove him home and he slept the majority of the seven hour trip. That night he got the chills and started running a fever again. He contacted the doctor Monday morning and they told him to come into urgent care.  They immediately admitted him to the hospital.  Diagnosis was diverticulitis, and hernia, perforated bowel. They put him on anabiotic several days and he started feeling better. This morning the antibiotics quit working and they decided to get him into surgery. During the CAT scan before surgery they discovered he also had  a marble sized stone in  his gall bladder.   Therefore,  in surgery they removed about a foot of his colon, repair of the hernia, removed the  gallbladder, and also removed his appendix.   The doctor says he is stable and will be in the hospital probably at least a week. I will continue updating here at the site.
