Emily's next surgery is on Monday
I know I've been bad at blogging this summer. We've been really busy doing family activities. Hopefully I can catch up soon. But I wanted to let you know that Em's having the second part (out of three parts) of her surgeries to recreate a new colon on Monday. They will go in and create a "J-pouch" using her small intestine. She will still have her ileostomy until after her 3rd surgery (probably next year). But this surgery is the most critical in that if something goes wrong or they find things are worse than they expect inside, the surgery could fail and she could have an ostomy her whole life. She'll be in the hospital about 2 weeks. Please keep her in your thoughts! I'll keep you all updated. Thanks!
