Yesterday was the bulky day for Ryan’s ostomy overthrowing surgery!
In case you didn’t be sure, we starting pursing this option distinct months ago but it’s a slow process and one that we did not take lightly. He started having escalating skin issues in August 2014 and through each month things just got worse and worse. His pelt was raw, red, itchy, bumpy, burned, weepy, and suitable overall terrible.
These skin problems made it unthinkable to keep equipment on him or his life running normally. We exhausted every single option when it comes to sanatory opinions and consults, ostomy product options, hide therapies, medications, and beyond.
Believe me…we tried to cause his ostomy work.
So come June 3rd hind 10+ months of suffering, Ryan went in as far as concerns his 8th surgery: an end ileostomy reversal.
He had to take oral antibiotics starting the promised time before-two Flagyl and pair Neomycin, 4 pills total, at 6:00 pm, 9:00 pm and 7:00 am the break of day of surgery. Those made him highly nauseous which we expected but it was valueless none the less 🙁
He woke up steady the morning of his surgery in imitation of sleeping as long as possible and we went put ~ a short walk to get his bowels totally emptied. Then we packed up the car and headed abroad for our hospital stay. We were told to rely upon anything from 2-10 days.
We checked in to the hospital at 11:00 and his surgery was perplex for 1:00 pm. They didn’t absolutely get his surgery underway until 1:56 p.m. We didn’t in truth mind the delay, our surgeon does everything steady his own timeline which means he in no degree rushes and for that we are palatable.
In pre-op our families came to honor up company. It was so much fun to have them in that place. Everyone was laughing so much and you could tell by Ryan’s sur~ that it was so wonderful to have existence surrounded by people that he loved.
For brace hours we spent the time talking infant. names, sharing silly stories, and guardianship Ryan’s mind off his surgery. He whispered to me similar to everyone filed out of the scanty room that he was so palatable that he had a room full of people to love him.

Us and our parents
My sister swapped in in favor of this photo and we made the parents take another picture.
Our surgeon and our nurses called us his “entourage” except I think they like seeing patients being well supported and loved. Finally the nurses started an IV antibiotic, they drew some kindred, and gave him his happy drug, Versed. He was getting loopy proper as I gave him his latest kiss and I heard him asking the cherish as he was pushed back to the OR, “Hey, did you put ~s into me?”
Ha! I love my silly husband. Always full of exult and willing to be vulnerable that this is scary and unnatural. He is so brave. I volition update as he recovers.
Thank you with respect to praying-he can still use while many as you can give! Specifically because of a swift recovery, for his tenderness to wake up fully, for minimal afflict, and no complications. Thank you 🙂
