The last time Danny urinated was right before he was admitted yesterday morning at 9:00. He has been trying to pee for the last couple of hours with no success. The nurse just put a catheter in and he's relieved that now he only has "one thing to worry about". He's asked several times why his belly hurts so badly and I've explained the process of sewing a mesh patch to the muscle tissue...sounds painful to me!! His nurse just told us that surgeries in the belly area always seem to be the most painful for patients. She said that in terms of fractured or broken bones, ankles are the most painful. 

He's finally sleeping so I'll try to sleep too. The couch beds are much more comfy on the LVAD and transplant floors!! General surgery is for the birds....
