Update #8, Slow Progress

Susan is progressing slowly, although the doctors say she's right on schedule. She started seeing swelling in here lower left abdomen last night and it has slowly gotten worse to the point of causing pain. The docs were concerned so they ordered a CT scan. They saw some bleeding in the anastomosis where the small and large intestines were reconnected. Which is most likely causing the inflamation. So she won't be doing her routine jog arround the building, she's supposed to take it easy today.
She just continues resting, we didn't get much sleep last night.
Still no farts. Pray for flatulance!

Thanks for all the updates, Justin. :) I'm sending some whoopi cushions over so when the gas does start coming, Susan doesn't have to be the only one. I really wanted to find an electric fart machine, (that would be pretty entertaining to use on visitors), but it looks like the whoopi will have to do for now. :) Take it easy!

Justin and Susan,

I'm impressed with your blog tending abilities, Justin! Great Job!!

We are so glad that the surgery is over, take it easy - and let things mend.

You are in our thoughts and prayers on a daily basis. I don't think I have ever prayed for flatulance, so this will be a first! Would some beans from Rosita's Mexican Restaurant help??

Gail (and Kent)

I've never prayed for flatulance. This should be fun!

Hope you're feeling better soon, Susan.
