This Week at the Hospital

  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.
