Marianne should be coming home today. She was in a lot of pain on Wednesday & Thursday. Once she got her gas passing and bowels working the pain subsided. She was getting around great yesterday and doing fine with her liquids. However her bladder did not want to work so she was not urinating. MJ

Marianne is doing great. She was moved to a regular room from ICU today. She is getting 30cc of water every hour and she REALLY REALLY enjoyed that. She was so thirsty and had no problem sipping it and keeping it down comfortably. She was walking much better today and looked super. She was very tired and napped a lot in between. As you can imagine she was also getting a little more uncomfortable with the extra activity. Her pain pump is helping keep that in check. The nurse mentioned that she may advance to other clear liquids too. I am guessing she will be released by Friday but I am sure we will know more tomorrow. Keep the good vibes coming her way. Thank you all for the great messages sent to her I know when she gets home and reads them she will be most appreciative. Hugs all MJ

Here is how the day went: 7:15 am Checked in 7:35 am Height & weight taken 7:50 am Blood pressure / temp & pulse taken 8 am Peggy the nurse got her IV started and was able to do it first try...Moh was so happy about that 8:10 am She was all set to go 9:04 am she was taken to the pre operative holding area she was excited and very happy amazing spirits 12:55 pm Dr. Gonzolvo came in and told us she did GREAT, she was in recover and already chatting wide awake and very happy. He told us the surgery went from 10:30 am - 12 Noon We went in and saw her in recovery 3:30 she was placed in ICU (standard procedure for the first 24 hours after this type of surgery) We left at 5:15 as she was very sleepy. She will be out of bed and walking this evening as well as sitting in a chair. Tomorrow they will do the swallow test (again standard procedure) and then she will start on phase 1 of her new life getting clear, sugar free liquids. She did great and I will write again tomorrow.
