What they do is, when they put it together, when they take out a piece of your intestine, they don’t attach it end to end because that might break. What they do instead is they put two ends of it together. You can see what they did. There was blood pooling around the liver and the spleen with mesenteric tears. They took out, they transected the small bowel with the GI stapler, and oh yeah, it was 55 centimeters. They did anastomosis. What they did is they took the two remaining sides of it; they took a clean cut; they put them together; and then, they closed it up together with permanent staples to close that. And then what they did is they opened up between them, and then they sewed them together here if you can see, sewed them together here so that when he’s digesting it goes through there. He has had some issues with this post-surgically; however, this is the standard of care in how these small type of ruptures are addressed. So, a lot of times, after and post an impact like that, the doctors will monitor these patients to make sure that their organs are working well, their digestive systems, these other things because the sudden deceleration can negatively affect someone and cause permanent injuries inside them even if they’re not noted right away.
