For anyone that reads Dad's blog, you already know this, but for those that don't, my little sister is in the hopsital.
It was supposed to be a simple gallbladder surgery, which I had done in May. No big deal right? It's an outpatient surgery. She'd be sore for a few days and then hopefully (unlike me) start feeling better.
Yeah, well apparently there was a gallstone the size of a golf ball and they had trouble actually removing the gallbladder. Then a stone or maybe stones passed through her bile duct and caused an obstruction. So, she had to be transported to another hospital for another surgery.
She has a tube coming out her side with a little bag to collect blood. It's gross. And she's very yellow. They are afraid she will have a bowel leak...apparently that little bag would tell them if that should happen.
The last I heard, she is still in surgery. I am closer to the hospital she will be transported back to, so I'm waiting. I'm hoping I can get there before the snow storm they are calling for gets here.
So that's my post for the day. I'll be spending the rest of the day in the hospital fighting Dad for that one very uncomfortable chair and drinking extremely nasty coffee from the vending machine.
Oh...hey I forgot to tell you guys that I can drink coffee again! My first cup since my surgery was a couple weeks ago and oh.my.gosh, it was the best thing ever. Heaven in a cup.
