let the healing begin 

Ryan is back in the room and settled for the evening. Surgery lasted about 3 1/2 hours, and we are so thankful the surgeon was able to use Ryan’s appendix to connect his bladder to the stoma which is his belly button. That means he did not have to do a bowel resection and use a piece of small bowel for the connection. Ryan has an epidural to help with pain, but we are trying to avoid narcotics because of his history with bowel obstructions and ileuses postop. 

Your texts, prayers, and encouragement are so appreciated. This is been a very stressful day but we are thankful everything went well in surgery. Much love to you all.
