Topic: Lauren's 2nd Surgery News
Sorry to take so long to let you know how Lauren is doing. The answer is GREAT!!!!!! Prayers have definitely been answered and miracles have taken place!! I am sitting in the ICU as Lauren rests comfortably. We were up at 3:30am. We were at the hospital at 5:45. Lauren's surgery was scheduled for 7:30. They started her surgery at 8:37 and it wasn't over until 3:45. They resected the right side and had to fix a few things that weren't exactly right. We were told it was a very, very difficult surgery. Lauren had to have 8 units of blood. The surgical fellow said it was the most technically difficult surgery he had ever assisted in. Thank God for the brilliance of Dr. Sonnenday. He gave her the best gift: a chance to live. If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them. Right now I am pretty much emotionally and physically drained. But, I had to let all of you know that Lauren is doing well and hopefully on the road to a full recovery. Thanks for all of your prayers and support.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
