Katy went back on the dreaded Fentanyl patch in order to manage her pain. It is barely helping but she slept seven hours last night.
The surgeon has scheduled Katy for surgery at Roanoke Memorial Saturday morning 10:30 for the removal of her gall bladder. She will begin a platelet transfusion before the surgery at 8:30. She will have to stay overnight, but if all goes well she will be able to leave the hospital on Sunday. As we look back on the past four months, when she was diagnosed with pancreatitis and gall bladder problems, we are now wondering if some of her major back pain, acid reflux, esophagus inflammation, is all related. We hope and pray that this surgery may relieve some of these distressing symptoms. Thank you for your prayers.Comments:
