A new Mom update May 9, 2008

My Mom was scheduled to have her tenth surgery yesterday, but it was postponed until next Thursday.  We visited my family about three weeks ago, and sickness, allergies, and a dislocated elbow couldn’t stop us from making it.  Our short trip was fun for all, and Grandma got to see her two wonderful granddaugthers.

Since her last operation, the wound has been healing nicely.  However, another fistula formed because there is not enough skin to close properly.  As a result, a plastic surgeon will be joining the operating team next week to address that.  The goals for this surgery are to fix the fistula (again), repair with plastic surgery or Mighty Putty, and reverse the ileostomy.
