mom did GREAT. see, i told y’all she was a ROCKSTAR 🙂
surgery is done and they are taking her to recovery now where they will wake her up, get her settled, and then we will able to see her in the next hour or so. dr. shen was able to remove the tumor in the pancreas using the simple procedure ((enucleation)) and the gallbladder polyp was BENIGN. she is going to be admitted straight to the floor and does not have to go the ICU. dr. shen said he thought she would be in the hospital for about 5 days.
that my friends, is what we call exceedingly, abundantly more than we could ask or imagine. thank you all for your prayers!
- pain control without the need for narcotic pain medications
- that mom would have the ability to get up and moving as soon as possible
- that mom would not develop a pancreatic fistula (hole). this is the most common post-op complication from the enucleation procedure (69-70%). please pray mom will be in the 30% that doesn’t have this complication
. . .i will be reading all of your amazing, loving, beautiful comments to mom later tonight once she is settled in her room.
thank you all for you love, prayers, and continued support.
