Not good news...she needs surgery...it is scheduled for tomorrow morning...she has Intussusception which mean that there was swelling in the lymph nodes in the intestine wall...because of that part of her intestine, the part where the large and small intestine meet, folded over...apparently, it was just too painful for her to eat...the Dr. said we were lucky that I brought her in because she had a very large blockage. He was amazed that I didn't see any signs of her in pain...from what he told me, the spasms that this causes is enough to bring a full grown adult to their knees...but she never showed any signs of being in pain...her inability to feel pain like we do worries me even more now...if it weren't for the fact that I listened to you guys rather than the Dr. she could have died!!!! I am really worried about her...she looks so small and weak sitting on the hospital bed...I mean being in teh hospital is nothing new to her, but she is just sitting there, in her own world, staring into space...she hasn't made a sound since we got there...I see her withdrawing and I don't know what to do...I think she's scared, but I can't even get her to look at me, how am I supposed to reassure her? I don't know...I'm gonna go and just have her sit on my lap for a while...Thank you so much for convincing me to take her to the ER guys...I will keep you updated...I have my laptop at the hospital with me so, I will post an update any time I have one...wish us luck!!!

Welcoming any kind words to calm my anxiety the day before my surgery tomorrow morning. It's on Monday Dec. 3rd; Wednesday is when I hope to be discharged if all goes well, so say a prayer for me tonight. It's when anticipation will be most on my mind. Prayers welcome. If I don't see your posts here until after surgery, they'll still really uplift me. Since I live alone and have no...
