Our Daughter's Latest Surgery
We just got back home today from the hospital, where yesterday our 26-year-old daughter had yet another surgery in her attempt to lose the ileostomy and external bag. The surgery took about 6 hours, and she spent the evening in recovery until they found a room for her at 11:30 pm. She's at the University of Caifornia-Irvine Medical Center, which is about 60 miles from here. We stayed in a hotel near the medical center the night before her surgery and last night, and then came home today. We'll stay home tomorrow, and go back on Sunday to spend the day with her. The doctor predicts she'll be in the hospital a week; she wants to go home on Tuesday. We'll see.
