FRITZ SIEBE. Gunshot wound of colon and liver. Fritz Siebe, private, Co. D, 139th N.Y. Vols., aged 23, admitted to Harewood U.S.A. Gen'l Hospital, June 18, 1864, suffering from gunshot wound of abdomen, ball entering right anterior side, below the 10th rib, emerging behind, and about 1 1/2 inches from spine. Wounded June 3, 1864, at the battle of Cold Harbor, Va. On admission, the patient was in a very feeble condition; the discharge from the wound consisted of feces, mixed with greenish streaks from the ascending colon and liver; complained of pain in abdomen, increased by pressure; discharge per rectum, scanty. Treatment, cold water dressing over the abdomen, opium internally, and light, nourishing diet. July 1 - pain in abdomen diminished, but discharge the same; July 15 - patient complains of occasional colic pain; August 1 - patient improving; discharge the same up to August 15, but from that date the patient began to improve. September 1 - the wound of exit healed; discharge consisting of a thin yellowish serum. September 14 - wound entirely healed; colic pain, now and then recurring, but able to be about. Was furloughed Oct. 8, 1865, and soon afterwards returned to duty entirely well. ----o---- Henry Raboquette?
