Tom Bolhouse(my uncle) had an appointment with a gastrointestinal doctor. We went straight from there to hospital where they did surgery on 3 polyps in his small intestine and colon. They were growing into each other. If he waited much longer, they could have caused part of the colon to die. So, they removed the polyps and about a foot of colon and put it back together. He is in a lot of pain but he just got up and walked. He has good color now. He had an obstruction as well which they fixed. He's been back and forth to the hospital with serious infections. Now, he needs time to heal. But he is not completely out of the woods. He is self employed and having a hard time covering his medical expenses and could use all the help he could get. Any amount would help greatly.
