Eyesa Horg Posted December 15, 2022 Share Posted December 15, 2022 My Ellie has been having a lot of pain from diverticulitis since before Thanksgiving. She was admitted back into the hospital yesterday. Looks like a long surgery to happen on Friday. At this time the Docs. are indicating a colostomy and then another surgery in 6 months. She's been so bummed not shooting this year due to her shoulder injury and now this I'm sure your keeping her in your thoughts will help. Thanks, EH UPDATE: 12/ 16 Your thoughts and prayers got Ellie thru surgery, about 6 hours. Very infected colon and to do a hysterectomy as well as the infection had spread there as well. Will need surgery again in 6 or 7 months to put colon back together. It will be a rough year for her, but should be good to go and back to the ranges eventually. Thank you so much with your spiritual help. EH UPDATE 12/19: Visited Ellie today. She is much improved, getting out of bed with help. She seems so much better. No more of the pain she had. Starting to feel the incision, but nothing by comparison. We both thank you all so much for your support on the prayer posse . No date for coming home yet though EH UPDATE 12/22: Just back from visiting Ellie. Slipped back for a couple days, but had new external plumbing/tubing removed today as well as the compression bandage. She is feeling so much better. Pretty much getting up on her own to use the bathroom, a big step. Hoping to have her home for Xmas, but not rushing things! Thank you again for your continued thoughts and support. It helps us both a lot. Merry Christmas. UPDATE 12/24: Ellie took a step back yesterday, seems she developed a pelvic infection. Drain just installed this afternoon and antibiotics. Doc says not unusual and she will be in several more days. UPDATE 12/27: Things are looking up. Ellie is off the IV and drain to be removed tomorrow. Doc called me this morning and indicated she might be able to come home tomorrow. She's still a bit uncomfortable, but I can tell she is feeling much better. The Prayer Posse support has helped us both more than I can articulate. Thank you all so much. EH UPDATE 12/28: Ellie is home! Yay! She is doing well and happy to be home. I will follow up in a few days We both would like to thank the Prayer Posse for all of your help, thoughts, and support. We feel very blessed to be members of this bunkhouse.
