Hi all, Well, I'm finally home after 48 days in the hospital. Still having some problems, but still a lot better than I was. I know my daughter probably updated most of you on my condition. I had a really rough time. They couldn't stop my bleeding. I had a total of 30 pts of blood when it was all over. The doctor closed me back up after the first surgery, but went back in two days later and finished. He said they didn't have to use the paddles on me,but other than that, I almost died. I was in ICU 10 days, I don't really remember that much though. I guess that's good. My colostomy is working pretty well, Not much problems with it. I still have a cathether because my bladder won't work. I go to urologist on Monday. Hope everything starts working. Anyhow, I am still recovering. Not much strength after being in bed that long. Went to my surgeon's appt yesterday and he said things are looking better. Please still remember me in your prayers. I've missed you all and hope you're all doing well.
Love and prayers, Judy H(grandma047)
