Had a consult with the surgeon today.

Not the news we were hoping for :(
Looks like her lingering complications are more of an issue then we thought.
Having extensive scopes and scans in the morning to get a new plan of attack.
Nothing sure yet but the surgeon is leaning towards putting off all surgeries at this point.

Best case, he finds the complication isn't as bad as he fears and will be a simple operation.
Next case is getting a team of surgeons, going over all scans, scopes and planning a much more invasive procedure in the near future. Which will mean another trip back up here.

Maybe it's the pessimist in me or possibly the realist, but I'm expecting at least 3 more trips back here over the next 6-9 months.

Hang in there, my friend. You can't hurry the healing process. Caution is the best path to take now....

I wish her a full and complete recovery.

As scalpel says, somethings are best not rushed and it sounds like you have good quality care for her!

Hang tough. 5 years ago, I was given a 3% to 5% chance of surviving. Other than gaining a big gut , I am still kicking hard as ever.

I was told that attitude means everything. be strong, be hard headed and do not be afraid.

That's too bad, I was hoping for a quick and easy solution for ya'll, but, she's in great hands over there so hang tough. While it seems everything's at a crawl once they get everything back to true you'll be amazed at how quickly it was accomplished.

Best wishes and feel free to give a shout if ya'll need anything.

OK here's where we are now.

Scans/scopes today brought us very good news. :)
The repair is going to be an "easy" fix. Well easier anyway.. nothing easy at this point, but it will be the easier possibilities.

We're done here for now. Looks like another trip back here in about 3 months. Then another one a few months after that.

Thanks for all the prayers and support

Glad to hear the good news!Sounds like Christmas came a few days early for you and yours!

Still, one day down the road, you will look back on the entire trip as a good thing, good times with family and outweighing the bad by far.

Woohoo! That's great, glad it's the easier issue to fix. You do realize that in 6 months it'll be June, therefor beautiful up here and you will be required to take your family fishing to celebrate...pretty sure that's a Wisconsin/Minnesnowta law:D

Those are the type of laws I can deal with.
