Surgery scheduled...

Annabel will be having her surgery, loop ileostomy on July 17th. There are two ways he will approach this and we are hoping the more conservative method is what will work. She will end up with a bag. I had so many concerns about this surgery, including did she really need it. In the last couple of weeks Annabel has been going through some very painful episodes and her baseline is getting lower and lower. I know she can't go on this way or basically she would lay in her bed all the time. We still get some happy, wiggly times but they are shorter and much less.
So next week, I am ready. I pray that she tolerates the surgery well and that we will be home by the weekend.
I will be updating from the hospital when possible. Again, thank you for your continued prayers.
