So good news, the stent came out with relative ease, so very very thankful for that!
Dr. O was quite pleased with how things went, he even managed to maneuver the scope around her GJ tube leaving her tube in place. We were fearful that Lucy would restenosis immediately upon stent removal, that did not happen. Her bile duct stayed open and is draining, for now. We are not expecting it to stay this way forever which is why we have a drain in her gallbladder.
Lucy is comfortable and sleeping like a doll baby. We are waiting for our transport team to come and take us "home" where she will recover where everybody knows her.
Drew and I are sitting quietly by Lucy's bedside typing away on opposite sides of her bed. Every now and then we look up simultaneously and just smile.
Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers, love and support.
