After almost 5 hours, she is out...the doc says that she has damage to her esophogus and they had to cut out part of her intestine...she's expected to make a full recovery, but she'll have to be on a high calorie diet for the rest of her life because with the shortened intestines, her food will be digested quicker than normal, so she isn't going to get the calorie's and vitamin's she needs...she hasn't woken up yet, so I don't know how she's doing...she looks so small...I wish I could hold her, but they told me no...she is on a respirator because she had an asthma attack during the surgery and they had to numb her lungs so it didn't interfere...I'm soo worried...I wish I had someone here with me :(
