He's done!

The surgeon just came out. Riley's done. We havent' seen him yet. Here is the short story:

they reconnected his ostomy and that's that.

He found NO evidence of the fistula that formed when he poured stool from his incision back in December!! Truly a miracle.

He kept EVERY bit of the large intestine he has left!!!

He found NO issues to correct other than reconnecting his stoma.

It took a LONG time to get in an IV and they actually ended up having to insert a type of central line called a Cook catheter. His surgery was also delayed by 2 hours. So a rough start but a GREAT finish.

We are waiting for him to go to the Post Anesthesia area (NO PICU!!!) and then we can see him.

How proud am I of my sweet Riley?!

Thank you for ALL the prayers. Hope you can tell that THEY WORKED!
