Lyn's Medical Journey
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💕
