Monday Jess had to undergo another surgery. Late Sunday night her drain had some stuff in it that the doctors were worried about so they ordered a CT with contrast on Monday morning. It showed a lot of infection, so they went back in. Her abdominal cavity was filled with pus and they ended up putting in an ileostomy to give her intestines a break. They also took out the area of her intestines that they repaired because it had a leak and couldn't be repaired properly. She will have the ileostomy for 6-12 months. She is not happy about it at all. Yesterday she slept the entire time we were there. She needs the rest.
Today Marshall and I stayed home. Him because of his back, me because I needed an emotional break. I am starting to feel the everyday trip to the hospital stress. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
