My mom has ulcerative colitis.
Here I sit from the hospital once again. My mom was just here a month ago, and now we have been here again for the last 2 weeks. She tried the Remicade and Prednisone and it didn’t help at all.
So here we are today, they have marked my mom’s stomach with where the stoma is going to be, and we sit and wait for surgery. It’s going to be today or tonight sometime, and I am so nervous! They said she is urgent so they said if they have to do the surgery at midnight, they will. They said they have to cut her right down her stomach and can’t do the 3 smaller incisions. Not sure why, but at this point, I just nodd my head when the team comes in. I just want my mom back, I hope she isn’t in shock when she first sees the bag and realizes that her life will be different again. I’ll let you all know how she does, I wish I could just sleep for the next 24 hours and wake up to some really good news!
