Colostomy No More.
Last Wednesday we learned they are going ahead with her colostomy take down, soon. She will be having surgery next Thursday, Feb 21. I haven’t posted a blog about it because I’m really not sure how I feel about it. Yes, I’m excited, but of course, sending your baby into surgery is never easy. Especially considering how badly Wendy reacted after her last surgery, I’m nervous to say the least. Also, I’m trying not to get my hopes up because there is no guarantee her bowels will work properly. There’s always a chance she could have to have a colostomy placed again. There’s also the chance that she will either not be able to control her bowels at all, which means she will have constant diarrhea and we will have to change her diaper constantly. Or it could be the total opposite and she may be constipated and we may have to do enemas several times a day. We just don’t really know what to expect, which also is why I don’t know how to feel about it. I’m praying for the best and preparing for the worst.
