Success! They were able to open up the bile ducts by opening her intestine and going up through the ducts (instead of down through, which is how it is done through the normal procedure in interventional radiology). They weren't sure if they would be able to get through at all, so they were pleasantly surprised at how quickly it went. She did well enough that we are pretty sure that she will not have to go to ICU, but directly to the transplant floor. She still has 2 drains, but they go all the way through the ducts. The drains will probably stay in for 6 months or so and they will regularly go in and "balloon" the ducts. They will want to be sure they will stay open before removing the drains, especially after having to place them surgically. Thank you for your prayers! Praise God for this good news!
