E-mail from Robert

For all those concerned, Robert is a little more specific.


Kim's surgery went well and last for just over 2 1/2 hours. The doctor did say that the scarring on her ureter was much larger than what he had expected but that didn't really change the outcome of the procedure. He was able to re-implant the ureter into her bladder without any real problems. She has yet another stent for at least the next 3 weeks to give her time to heal and then if all goes well the stent will be removed and the nightmare will be over. For now she is in a semi-private room pending a private room freeing up. We did have some initial issues with getting her pain medicine ordered but all has been resolved and I WILL be taking that up with the doctor in the morning. For the most part she is resting well and hopes to be able to walk around some tomorrow. Cell phones are not allowed in the patient rooms so I only have limited access to call with updates but will do the best I can. That's it for now I will update you all again tomorrow.

In closing I just wanted to thank you for all your support. We could not have made it this far without it.
