Lyn Hayes Lyn's Medical Journey

First post: Sep 16, 2017
Friday. 9-15-17.  Hey family and friends !  2nd day post surgery here at UPMC Pittsburg  on the amazing transplant floor!  Care is the most incredible I have  ever experienced.   Trying to voice text slowly as many drains,drugs and lines  but doing well and so very blessed!!    

Surgery was a huge success... 9 1/2 hours with talented  Dr Ruy Cruz and his wonderful team trying to repair what is left of my intestines  from years of Crohn's and radiation damage. 275  stitches I have to be careful not to tear. 

  We start out with 25 feet of total intestine and I  now  have 7 feet left after 4 more resections this week. In the big picture that is a lot compared to other  Crohn's patients and G.I. surgery warriors!

Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers and texts!   They are so appreciated!  Tube in  my nose and throat and fatigue make phone calls impossible right now.  Lots of love..LYN💕
