Just met with Dr. Lee Zoë's amazing Urology Surgeon. He was able to reconnect Zoë's right ureter to her bladder! So she has two kidneys, two ureters, and one bladder! The right ureter has a stint in it, and it will be watched for several weeks.
Even Later Last Night...
Zoë is up in the ICU. She is awake and alert. Looking around and is watching her doctors and nurses. We are
still waiting to see her.
The surgeon was unable to remove the tumor 100% due to it being connected to veins and her colon in such a manner that made it hard for even the best of the best to get it all.
In other news she is now short one appendix, just like her mommy. Dr. Shamberger joked that she is more like me every day. Always good to have a doctor joke after such a long day.
Zoë is fighting away. Writhing around and kicking even with an epidural and vallum. My long day is coming to a
close. Nurse Julie will be watching over her all night. I cannot wait for Zoë to feel a bit better so I can cuddle with her.
Off to Dreamlandia I go... I hope Zoë will follow me there.
So Much Later that it is Today...
Zoë was back up around four this morning. She was not herself so she was given tylenol. The pain team is looking
into something to help with possible itching caused by the epidural.
She is calm now. I hope she is back to sleep soon.
Up again at 6:30... urology was poking around and agitated her... Awesome Nurse Julie has her nearly out again.
Back to sleep after being held by mommy.
