Surgery Updateowel

This is James. Because I'm such a leet haxxor, I am updating you from Aud's blog.

Aud went in for surgery at 5ish, was out into recovery at 830 or so. They removed about 18 inches of her bowel, pretty much what they were expecting to have to do. There were no surgical complications, and the surgeon said she responded well. The anestheia doc said there was a problems when he went to do her epidural, and that he punctured the sac in her spinal column, essentially giving her a spinal instead of an epidural. There is the possibility for a nasty headache for the next 4-5 days, but there may not even be that, and keeping Aud on her back will help that. I know Aud would LOVE visitors, but I don't know when is a good time to start, I imagine starting tomorrow would be fine, but your results may vary. She's at Meridian Park Hospital in Tualatin, by the way.

I used to be sooo scared of getting a spinal tap. I'm sure it's not as big a deal as I thought as a little girl, but that sure doesn't sound like fun. Good luck with recovery. We'll see you soon!

Good luck on your recovery. I'm sure that Kildare and Casey and Clooney did a great job on you. Who needs that much intestine anyway? Really. Say hello to your folks for us.

hi Aud!

I hope you are feeling better. Being stuck in the hospital after major surgery is the pits! I am sorry we haven't been in better contact. Are you still in the hospital?? I hope you have been able to get home. Recovery is so much better without the twice hourly interuptions from nurses! :) We love you!
