Those are the words that Dr.
Obviously she is done. We got a call around 1:30 from Dr. Jennings and met him at Au Bon Pain while he got his lunch. He said that the intestines looked great, very little adhesions and that the connection between small and large bowel looked great. The reason food wasn’t going down the colon was that the connection had folded over on it’s self. He straightened everything out and said that is all that was needed.
He did make the ostomy smaller, but only under the skin, so what we see from the surface will look the same. He was going to make the skin opening smaller but said that would have caused a wrinkle in the skin, he was concerned that this would make it hard to keep ostomy bags on. We really appreciate the fore thought, we don’t need any more ostomy bag challenges.
G-tube. He looked at the old track and decided that here was not much he could do. So he installed a new hole. He cut a new hole in the skin but used the same hole in her stomach. It looks great and we are going to try everything we can to keep this one looking good.
Ellie moved to recovery in the PACU at 3:30 and we got to the floor around 5pm. But, we are not on 10 East (8west) there were no beds available. We begged and pleaded but they weren’t willing to kick some one out for us. Shame. So, now we are on 10 South. Same church different pew.
We now can not post on our blog using the hospital’s WIFI, we have to wander with a laptop and find a free signal. We will post more when we can.
