Shortly after my last post we found out some very surprising news...one of Mom's abdominal drains was actually in her stomach! (They injected sterile dye backwards through her drains and then did a sonogram to see where the dye went into her body. It ended up going directly into her stomach.) The doctor said that Mom would have never healed with that tube in that placement...so her doctor pulled the tube out by about 3 inches. They are waiting about a week and then they'll repeat the blue dye test to see if, now that a tube is not in it, her stomach can actually heal on it's own without surgery. We are all very hopeful that this will be the lucky break, or the miracle, or the chance that we have all been praying and waiting for! Keep hoping and praying with us!
