An Update on Mei-Ling
It's not the news I was hoping to share, but at least the procedure is over. It was so painful for our dear little grandbaby that her screams could be heard in the O.R. waiting room. They could not knock her completely out, then they would not have had any idea of what her bladder could tolerate. Having anything in her bladder produced horrific pain so it looks like she may not be able to have the surgery to reverse the vesicostomy. That in itself is hard news to hear, but knowing that this beautiful sweet child had such intense pain that she was screaming, just breaks my heart in so many ways. They are not home yet and have been gone for 9 hours. Yen has been a perfect baby all day for me. Don't think he cried for more than 5 seconds the entire day.
Please keep Mei-Ling in your prayers, that she recovers quickly and does not suffer nightmares from this painful day.
