We just met with Dr. Wellons, the neurosurgeon. Jack's abdomen is not as red and angry appearing since he got the antibiotics overnight. Dr. Wellons was very encouraged by that. Since there is definitely some type of inflammation, he is going to take Jack to the operating room and open up his abdominal incision. If he sees pus, he will clean it out and pull out the tubing and externalize the drain. Jack will get IV antibiotics and when the infection clears up, Dr. Wellons will re-route the tubing. If there is no pus or inflammation, he will just close Jack up and Jack will continue receiving IV antibiotics.
