Change of Plan.... No Bag!!!

Thank you for prayers. When Dr. M opened her, he saw a bad part of the small intestines that had a growth and another part that had totally twisted and folded over on itself. So instead of an ileostomy he removed the growth and resected her bowel further. He isn't sure that she won't need the ileostomy in the future, but for now we are so thankful. He also doesn't feel that the growth is cancer. Yay, no bag... We are waiting to see her in recovery. She will be moved to PCU and should be out in 3 days.

I've been so concerned about her all week, praying, knowing her surgery was happening. I'm thakful to hear it was less invasive than the original plan and so hopeful her little gut will know allow food to move through.

Please know that I'm always here, willing to help or answer any questions I possibly could when it comes to bowel function. Unfortunately, we have a lot of experience in this area.

Love you, love your sweet girl. Thinking of you both daily. Love, Trish and Ash
