What a RollerCoaster Ride

I hadn’t posted much about our crazy week but now that I THINK its over, I can tell you what has been going on….

On Tuesday we met with a surgeon to talk about Kaley’s upcoming surgery and set a date for Feb 14th (yes surgery on Valentine’s Day… NOT FUN but glad to be getting closer to all this being over).   The next day Kaley was in a TON of pain so we went to see her GI Dr who thought it might be pancreatitis and she was admitted into the hospital.  After a few days of not eating and drinking, Kaley was pain-free but her bloodwork was showing some inflammation was somewhere in her body and they wanted to do more tests.  We had reservations at the Nick Hotel for the weekend so I begged them to let us go and I would come back for more tests on Monday or if she felt any pain again we would come back.  They ended up letting us go around 6 pm on Friday and we headed to the Nick Hotel to check in (a review post will be coming soon).  We had a blast Friday night but the next morning Kaley woke  up with a huge hard lump near her incision site.  I was kinda freaked out that it got so big so fast so I emailed her GI dr who said to come back into the hospital.  We checked in and they did a CT scan to make sure it wasn’t a hernia.  Thankfully it looks like it is just an infection and they gave her a dose of IV antibiotics and a script for a super strong antibiotic that she will take for the next 10 days.

We got back home a bit ago but needless to say, my posts have been scarce due to all the events that have gone on.  I plan to get totally caught up later tonight though.

**and the good news is, her surgery date SHOULDN”T be affected by all of this (fingers crossed)
