Cecilia just called me at 9:30 p.m. - she had surgery today at 1:00 p.m. What a woman... She said that the surgeon came in last night and said that she wanted to do surgery, that she didn't think it was gonna resolve itself at this point. So Cece asked to get on the surgery schedule for today to get it over with. She put up a good fight to let the obstruction resolve itself, but was still throwing up evening with the NG tube.
Everything went well. They had to do a resection of a couple of inches of the intestine that was pretty damaged from scar tissue (adhesions). She is in a lot of pain, as expected - gosh she just got out of surgery like 8 hrs ago!! I will talk with her again tomorrow. It was a short chat tonight.
Let's keep Cece in our prayers and thoughts.
