Huge Thanks to some blogging friends who sent Edible Arrangements on the first day she was able to eat REAL food
Well it looks like we won’t be getting out of here any time soon. After they started letting Kaley eat real food, and having 2 days of feeling well and no pain, she started having severe pains in her abdomen yesterday (to the point of tears most of the day) and her blood levels showed she had Pancreatitis (inflamed pancreas). She is back on only liquids again and started taking morphine for the pain. She had Xrays last night and an ultrasound this morning to make sure nothing else is going on and the results look good other than the inflamed pancreas so we just need to let that rest before they will let her start eating again. They said this is very typical with this type of surgery so I am not TOO worried right now. Its just a set back that we weren’t expecting so it was kind of a blow to our spirits.
Flashes of Hope doing her hair and makeup
On a nice note, Flashes of Hope came out on Thursday and did her hair and makeup and took pictures to make her feel pretty. They will be mailing the pictures to us once they are developed.
And then on Friday, her high school band had their yearly photos done for their huge composite picture and they actually had the photographer come out to the hospital with the color guard uniform so she could still be able to be in the picture. Luckily that was a day she was feeling really good (and her hair was still curly from the day before). She looked great and had a HUGE smile on her face. I thought that was the nicest thing ever for them to do !!!
You would never know she was sick by how pretty she looks
(this is her “show” makeup which is why its so dark)
