She had a localized perforation and they did a stoma. They will go back later after she develops and fix it. She is stable and will be sedated for the next 48 hours. She will likely be back on dopamine and so we will start over....trying to get where we were today. Because it was localized the prognosis is good for recovery. She will also likely be swollen from all the blood and fluids they have given her because of the perforation as well as the surgery.
It is so hard to see her like this...not moving. It is not natural. Keep the thoughts and prayers coming...she still needs them.
Big Thanks for Stephen and Kim, who came up and sat with us and just listened before, during and after the surgery. Thanks Guys.
We also want to thank Mom and Bert for coming up with food and listening and supporting us during this difficult time.
Thanks Marion and Elliot for offering dinner. Mom and Bert beat you to the punch.
Tomorrow is new day....we just hope it is a better day for her.
