Update after surgery

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.

Ned you are such a wonderful person, husband and now father..Lisa you are one of the strongest women I have known and I wonder where you get that from ??

Please give Brinson my love and tell her I will see her real soon.

Love ya, Mom

Thank you for the update. Your little Brin is such a fighter! While she is sedated, she will heal and grow. but I am sure that is tough on you both. I pray for Brin and her entire family. Love, Barbara and Bruce
