She's back in the hospital. Started having severe pain and weakness and scan revealed she has another bowel obstruction. Apparently not rare after bowel obstruction surgery #1. It's evil. :(

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you. 

sunshine1881 --- 5 years ago -

Ugh, tell her I'm thinking about her, praying for her, and hope she feels better soon! 

Gigix4 --- 5 years ago -

Thanks for the update although it's not good news.
Wishing and praying for her to have a better recovery ... soon. 

TinktheSprite --- 5 years ago -

Sending love and hugs to Tat. That has got to be no fun. Are they thinking more surgery? 

Leila --- 5 years ago -

Thank you for the update! Please let her know that she is missed and in my thoughts and prayers. I know this setback is not only physically difficult, it takes an emotional toll on one as well.

Knock this out, Tat! You are a tough, strong lady, and you can do it! We need you back here on KU to slay the dragons! )

Oh, are the dragon!...nevermind, we need you to fight off fight the trolls!) 

Work in Progress --- 5 years ago -

Oh no, I am very sorry to hear that. I've certainly missed her on here. Does she need anything? 

them --- 5 years ago -

Hang in there, tat! 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

She will be treated with IV fluids and electrolytes and should be okay within 3 days. This is not a real blockage.

Unfortunately it IS. She just went into exploratory surgery. They want to see what's going on in there.

WIP, nothing right now, thanks, but you're prayers are coveted. I'm going to see her after surgery.

She misses you guys. 

You can call me Michelle --- 5 years ago -

Oh geez :( 

Not KU --- 5 years ago -

I'm going to see her after surgery.

Get well soon. 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

Sorry to hear that but what I posted is what normally happens after her first surgery. I hope it all comes out alright. 

TinktheSprite --- 5 years ago -

That's the funny thing about the human body. We are all different making no case a "routine case". What happens for one may not happen for another because it all depends on the person. I, too hope all goes well for Tat. Tell her we miss her posting. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

She's out and doing ok. In a lot of pain but I guess that's to be expected.

I will tell her you guys send regards.

Thank you all. 

Puss In Boots --- 5 years ago -

Prayers for you sweet DTD. I am asking for strength and courage for you. May He fill you with everything you need right at this very moment.

I am also praying for your medical team to be guided in their actions and course of treatment.

Hang in there! 

mutton --- 5 years ago -

She is loved and missed! I know is an unhappy set back for her. Love and kisses! 

Dorothy Parker --- 5 years ago -

Poor thing! She's been through a lot lately... :(

Feel better , Tat. 

smartypants --- 5 years ago -

Rats. I'm sorry to hear that. Thanks for the update SighFi. Please tell Tat


The Awe Inspiring JoelleDrees (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Love you Tat! Feel better!!! 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

The doc said her intestines collapsed and were "glued" together and had to be opened and cleaned out. I've never heard of such a thing. Has anyone been thru anything like this?

If you have, please post of your experience. I just get the feeling that we aren't being told everything. Since this happened 3 weeks post the first surgery, and nothing at that point was ocurring that would indicate a collapsed intestine that we were told, I just Have to wonder how these things are related.

It's a fact that the plumbing hasn't worked right since the first surgery. She never recovered from that procedure before this all happened. Was never able to eat without pain and agony.

Thanks for all of your concern! Much appreciated. 

Leila --- 5 years ago -

Oh, my. Poor thing. I am so sorry she has this to deal with. I am going to be reading about this because I always worry that my colon will suffer for my eating habits- I eat very little and I know I don't get enough fiber in my diet.

Does she suffer from Crohn's disease by any chance? 

freebyrdll --- 5 years ago -

Who's taking care of her pets? Knowing Tat, that would be one of her #1 concerns 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Leila, no she doesn't. Thank goodness!

FB, I got her covered with animals and household stuff. 

TinktheSprite --- 5 years ago -

Did the doctors tell you what their plan is? The colon moves by something called perastalsis, sort of like contractions that help move the food through. If she hasn't eaten anything in 3 weeks, the perastalsis will stop, which might cause the colon to collapse. Still, there should be bile and other liquids forming in the stomach even from not eating. I hope they are looking at Tat's stomach as well. Sorry I am of no help. All your questions should be asked and demand your answers until you are satisfied. Drill 'em with questions until the issues are understood fully. Don't let them leave you hanging in the dark! That is what they went to school for. Hugs to Tat. 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

The complete digestive tract depends on peristaltic movement. I do hope she is not at Kingwood Hospital at least. 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

Any word on how my tatty is recuperating? 

voice of reason --- 5 years ago -

sorry to hear this d.t.d. get well soon! 

esquala --- 5 years ago -

Dammit, tatty, I just want you to get better! I know you want that too. Sifi, she is so blessed to have you. Listen to Tink and hold them accountable. Change hospitals if you need to.

Thoughts and prayers for our tat. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Thanks all.

She's doing ok. Lots of pain and all that stuff. I think they are going to try some clear liquids or liquid food tomorrow. She's scared to eat, poor thing, she's been tortured of late by food. And eating. :(

Apparently when you open the abdomen and dink with intestines, they like to rebel. Nature has its own ideas how some things are suppose to work. I have a close friend who is a physician and he got me off my high horse. (Hanging head). It's not unusual for this to happen soon after a surgery and when someone goes long periods without eating. Her whole system is just messed up right now.

But she's hanging in there. Everyday is a chance to take a step toward normalcy.

A gentle reminder not to take the miraculous workings of the human body for granted. Eating without pain and agony, which we do everyday for the most part, shouldn't be taken for granted bc the flip side of that is a complete eye opener.

Baby is that your apology to me? I accept. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Are you a doctor now? Lmao 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

Why, you wanna play? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

I'll probably just keep riding my high horse, where it's safe! 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

But it's not safe. The fall from so high up stings like a mofo as your face hits the ground. LMFAO 

FabFive --- 5 years ago -

I hope she feels better soon. I think they can determine a lot with that barium drink and whatever that xray thing is that's live. One of my kids had to do that. I'm sure she's in good hands. Praying for her speedy recovery. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Well, she's out! Got home last night. The recovery starts again!

Hopefully this one goes the route of complete healing. It's been some journey. Two surgeries in one month, massive amounts of pain killers, IV's, collapsed veins and weight loss.

Keep her in your prayers please, it's much appreciated.

Oh, and thank God every day you feel well. We take so much for granted. 

Joe Blow --- 5 years ago -

You got that right. Get better quick Tatty. 

Gigix4 --- 5 years ago -

Hope you get to feeling much better very soon, Tat!
Prayers to you 

Leila --- 5 years ago -

I am so glad to hear that she is out of the hospital and hopefully on her way to recovery.

You are so right about taking our good health for granted, it is good to be reminded.

You have been missed, TAT! Welcome back!
