Hello everyone, all you good and wonderful friends! I think about all of you every day and am hoping all is well with you and yours.
April 4th, Friday, my husband had his fourth surgery. It was a 7 and half hour grueling affair and his surgeon is confident that this one has banished the source of the constant infections. The colon was straightened and rerouted and all fistulas were taken care of. For the next few days, he will be closely monitored for any tell-tale signs of infection. All his vitals are excellent, unlike the last three surgeries were he had terrible oxygen levels, high blood pressure, etc. He is dealing with the severe pain as much as is humanly possible, and has high expectations of being on the golf course sometime this summer!! He is also looking forward to eating again, as he has had nothing at all by mouth in four months. All his "food" and nutrition being administered by a feeding tube.
Spring brings us new beginnings, sunny opportunities and bountiful optimism.
I can feel that positive energy flying all around!!!
Brightest blessings and hugs from Robin!!!
