Not such a great surgery

Ted here: looks like I will be taking over the blog for a little while. Judging by the traffic today there are quite a few people looking for updates. Let me start by saying the surgeon to one look inside Janiece this morning and sent the nurse to find me and let me know they needed to open her up. Oh no this can't be good....
Well after 2 hours of surgery the doctor came in and told me and I quote: " I took one look and it looked like someone blew something up in there!" Thanks Doc, nice visual! He said that there were so many adhesion's and fibroids, that everything was sticking to her ovaries, bowels, etc.... He also needed to drain some ovarian cysts too. He also mentioned that he was surprised that she had made it this long.... Well I would like to say Janiece is resting quietly in her bed, but we all know better. She was bound and determined to walk around tonight and get the catheter remover, both of which she succeeded. She started to worry about everything and told me to call her boss tonight, because she was worried about the work schedule if she is out longer. I guess that I must of grown a pair again, because I told her that IT CAN WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW! Yes my head and all body parts are still attached. I think the DR. has pre-warned her nurses that she is determined to get out of there, because they are letting her do stuff(i.e eat solids) as she feels ready, instead of going by the guidelines. So she is going to be at Fort Atkinson Hosp. until Friday and then we will figure it out from there.

Wow, what an amazing woman to have been putting up with all of that! I hope they let her out soon so that body parts don't start getting chopped =) Please let her know that we are thinking about her!

Thank you so much for the update, Ted! I was afraid they'd have to do major "clean up" in there...Tell her to BEHAVE herself and be a good patient! (or I will have to come up there :) You'll be in our prayers.

We will be praying for a quick recovery. I'm glad to hear Janiece hasn't lost her spunk ;)

Sounds like the JP I know and love! Ted, I don't envy you trying to get her to relax and get better but I know you can handle it.

Tell JP I love her and to get well soon!

Please let her know she has lots of people thinking of her. And that she should take it easy a bit!

After hearing what all was going on inside her I'm wondering how she dealt with it and how she has so much resolve right now at getting out of there. This couldn't be an easy surgery. Take awfully good care of her. Tell her I'm thinking about her and praying for her and all of you.
