Had surgery today. She was full of stones again. Apparently my daughter makes stones from just her bile, no gallbladder needed. Doc was amazed to see them again, but please he didn’t have to stent anything. He is going to put her on some sort of bile thinning drug so that her apparently sticky bile doesn’t make cholesterol stones again. Also, you do not need to have high cholesterol to have cholesterol stones, learn something everyday. We are home, thank god. I was about to slaughter someone on the pediatric ward if we stayed longer. I will say the GI lab staff and recovery staff were amazing, on the ward, not so much. It was like going from uptown to the ghetto, literally. Ugh… never again. I am glad her pancreas is calm because if they were going to need to admit her, I was going to transfer her back to Methodist Children’s Hospital because I simply could not cope with the pedi ward. Moldy shower and shower curtain. Leaking faucet. Just fucking lame. Sorry folks, a lcd tv does not make up for clueless staff and just not a clean room. It was chaos.
I will blog more maybe tomorrow, just wanted to update everyone. Hopefully we are on the mend for good. Thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes.
