Hi everyone, just wanted to let you all know that Sierra's surgery went well. They were able to do lapro, yes!!! Her longest incision is about 4 in. They did an ileocolectomy (sp?) and resection. They removed the illeum, about 4 in of lg and 8 in or so of sm. She is doing pretty good. She's in pain but that is to be expected. She had a rough night with pain, nausea and vomiting but hasn't vomited since about midnight. She has had some jello but isn't interested in eating otherwise. I will keep ya's posted. Thanks for your support and prayers!
