Surgery Success

Good news: a colostomy was performed late Thursday evening, and Anne is recovering nicely. She is already on a liquid diet and the surgeon came by today and said she could probably start on solids tomorrow! She was in excellent spirits on Friday morning and was only a little groggy from the ordeal and the meds. The nurse had her sitting in a chair for lunch, then took us for a walk around the ward after. Anne is now snoozing peacefully after the workout, but another walk is scheduled in the next couple of hours.

We are all looking forward to finally getting some good food in her tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for finger-crossing, good thoughts and support.

Hi Anne,
So glad to hear the surgery went your way and that your spirits are up. What an ordeal! Here's to being able to rest comfortably again, eating good food and returning home soon xooxox Michelle

Anne and JP,

All my love from New York for you two and your family and friends! My mom has just recently moved to Woodstock, ON, and I plan on going to Toronto at least a few times to see her in her new home: the next time that I'm back in that part of the world I do hope to be able to drop by for a long awaited reunion.

Your guys' strength really are such an inspiration. I know it's been said before, but that doesn't make it any less true.

All the best,

Yiliu

I agree that most surgery are successfully done, but many surgery are not so well. I see many example of this kind of failure surgery.
