i had my surgery on Monday and was supposed to get released this coming friday but suddenly have a fever that keeps going up. it was 98.7 this morning and now is 101.2 even after taking tylenol. my surgeon will be coming by soon so i'll see what she says. im very scared because she said she nicked my intestine when trying to removr the massive scar tissue that had gotten wrapped around my intestine. ill have to explain more to you later if im not so drugged. this is hard to type when you are on the pain meds. not sure when i'll be going home. they originally said Friday but not so sure now.
anyway, i just wanted to give you all an update....
