Update #15

Not a lot has changed, at least not as fast as Susan and all of us hoped. The swelling has gone down, but there is still a lot of fluid build up in the abdomen area. The pain and discomfort seem like they will never go away. She got her staples out from the second surgery this morning. The NG tube finally came out yesterday also. She's now eating clear liquids and small amounts of soft foods. Hopefully, if all goes well, the surgeons want to kick her out of here on Monday. They said she has over stayed her welcome. Let's hope for Monday.

P.S. She farted yesterday!!
