Update on Megan

Megan had complications following her surgery last Friday. As most of you know, I took her to the ER on Tuesday when she started having severe pain. They admitted her and administered IV drugs (morphine based) and tried to wean her to oral meds. Today they did a HIDA test (Google it) and it looks like there is a small leak, probably from the bile duct. So at 7:15am they'll do another surgery to put a stent in. It will be done endoscopically through her mouth and will not require (shouldn't anyway) any incisions. They will inject dye to see where the leak is and then do the repair. Hopefully that will be the end of the matter and she might even be able to go home tomorrow night or Saturday morning. Then, if they put in a stent, she'll go back in 4-6 weeks for an outpatient procedure to remove the stent.

The kids are in George West with her folks. Mike will drive to Austin tomorrow sometime after having arrived back in the US tonight. I wish he could have come tonight but that's not a good idea after traveling 28 hours to get back home.

I'll keep you posted and let you know how things are going.
