Good news. Will continue to pray for healing

Ok, so some of this is a repeat, but here is the whole thing:

I just got home from the hospital. Mom had surgery to repair a hernia and they removed a length of small intestine that had become necrotic due to strangulation from the hernia (which was apparently grapefruit sized). They patched the intestine with a piece of pig intestine.

Her kidney function was low due to dehydration so between the recovery from the open surgery and this, she will likely be in the hospital for a couple of weeks. I did not get to see her, but my dad did and she was asleep. We were told that she was awake, stable and her pain was not very high. We all decided to go home and get some sleep. Dad
will return tomorrow where he hopefully will get to see her.

Thanks again for the thoughts and prayers.

Yikes! Good that they caught it and got it cleaned up.

Scary! I'm glad they were able to repair her intestine. My mom had hernia surgery about a month ago and she hurt pretty bad for a few days, then started to feel better after about a week. She only hurts if she overdoes it now. Hopefully your mom's recovery will be just as quick!
