Yesterday’s surgery went well with no leaks. Praise the Lord! Dr. Manfredi completed a significant amount of cutting and balloon dilations on the upper and lower strictures. He was extremely pleased with the results. This morning, we were released from the hospital.
We have the next 2 weeks off for the esophagus to heal. Then, another 1 or a few more dilations before we can go home. 😦 We had our hopes up that we would be going home next week. In the long run, it is probably better to get Lucas perfect before going home. Still, we’re a bit down and missing our AZ family.
We may check out of the hotel for a week or so to drive up to Clifton Park, NY to spend time again with our relatives. Trying to make the best out of our long time away from home.
